Persistent organic compounds in food chains in Bavaria and Czechia. Pt. 1. Terrestrial systems; Persistente organische Verbindungen in Nahrungsketten von Bayern und Tschechien. T. 1. Terrestrische Systeme

Abstract

In the paper presented here single presentations concerning the contamination of soil, vegetation and organs and tissues form animals and man with persistent organic substances (DDT and metabolites, isomers of hexachlorocyclohexane, hexachlorobenzene, cyclodiene insecticides, chlorophenols, light volatile organic compounds, PCDD/F, PAH and nitromusk compounds) from Bavaria, the Czech Republic and Brandenburg/Berlin and the former GDR, respectively, were assessed, summarized and - as far as possible - compared and confronted. The results are given in the summaries of the single chapters. It could be shown that the different socioeconomic structures in the regions upto 1989 has considerable influences on the extent of the contamination. Large corpusses of law concerning the application and production of chemical products and their increasingly denser monitoring in Bavaria as well as the various sanitation measures has lead to only traces of chloroorganic compounds now and to a minimization of unavoidable substances like PCDD/F. These prerequisites have now been created in the new federal states - here the example Brandenburg - where upto 1989 the national economy was only directed at production maximization and they begin to result in a decrease of contamination especially for the classical chlorohydrocarbons. In the Czech Republic there are still mostly considerably  More>>

[Deutsch] In der vorliegenden Arbeit wurden Einzeldarstellungen zur Kontamination von Boden, Aufwuchs und von Tieren bzw. dem Menschen stammenden Organen und Geweben mit persistenten organischen Verbindungen (DDT und Metabolite, Isomeren des Hexachlorcyclohexans, Hexachlorbenzol, Cyclodien-Insektizide, Chlorphenole, leichtfluechtige organische Verbindungen, PCDD/F, PAK und Nitromoschusverbindungen) aus Bayern, Tschechien und Brandenburg-Berlin bzw. der ehemaligen DDR ausgewertet, zusammengetragen und - soweit dies moeglich war - verglichen und gegenuebergestellt. Die Ergebnisse sind in Zusammenfassungen der Einzelkapitel aufgefuehrt. Es konnte in z.T. fundierten Ansaetzen gezeigt werden, dass die unterschiedlichen sozialoekonomischen Strukturen der Regionen bis 1989 erhebliche Einfluesse auf die Ausmasse der Kontamination ausuebten. Umfangreiche Gesetzeswerke zur Anwendung und Herstellung von Chemieprodukten und deren immer dichtere Ueberwachung in Bayern fuehrten ebenso wie zahlreiche Sanierungsmassnahmen dazu, dass die klassischen chlororganischen Verbindungen nur noch in Spuren vorkommen und auch unvermeidbare Verbindungen wie PCDD/F minimiert werden koennen. Diese Voraussetzungen wurden in den neuen Bundeslaendern - hier dargestellt am Beispiel Brandenburg - wo bis 1989 die Volkswirtschaft ausschliesslich auf Produktionsmaximierungen ausgerichtet war, geschaffen und beginnen sich in deutlichen Abnahmen der Kontaminationshoehen (fuer PCDD/F und PAK lagen keine Materialien vor) insbesondere fuer die klassischen CKW auszuwirken. In Tschechien werden immer noch erheblich hoehere Belastungen z.B. fuer HCB und vor allem PCB registriert, die ein Augenmerk auf moegliche grenzueberschreitende Wirkungen erforderlich machen.
