The project HCHinEU is part of resolving the HCH and Lindane issues in the EU.
On behalf of the European Commission DG Environment, the Consortium (TAUW Group, CDM Smith and SARGA representing Government of Aragón ) is carrying out an EU wide inventory of potentially HCH impacted sites.
HCH (Lindane) is a persistent organic pollutant and most countries in the world agreed under the Stockholm Convention to stop using these chemicals and dispose of the remaining obsolete stocks.
Currently over 200 potentially HCH impacted sites have been identified in 23 out of the 27 EU member states.
To elaborate more on these results the Consortium organizes two webinars. Each hosted on a different day:
November 26th 2020 – 10am CET
December 1st 2020 – 2pm CET
The subject of these two webinars will be the same and held in English.
Please join the webinar and learn more about HCH. We also need your assistance to identify sites within Europe.
