PCB, DIOXINS AND OTHER POPs

Ces migrants clandestins invisibles, inodores et invasifs font des voyages court ou long courrier et s’accumulent là où ils n’étaient pas attendus, dans les sédiments, les réservoirs des barrages, le règne animal et le règne végétal, les sols et les masses d’eau et le lait des mammifères. Ils proviennent le plus souvent d’applications industrielles, agricoles, domestiques et bureautiques. En fin de vie et hors de contrôle, ils pourrissent la nôtre, celle des baleines et des vaches dans les prairies.

Pernicious PCB

 The environmental, sanitary, and social catastrophe due to PCB is propagated to the point that it now affects the sea and international waters. The sardines move, are eaten by carnivorous fish, and enter into the composition of fish meal. PCB accumulates and becomes concentrated in the higher levels of the food chain.

Robin des Bois publishes the map of interior and maritime waters struck by bans on fishing, consuming, or transporting all or particular species of fish. This map is comparable to an inventory of land sites polluted by PCB, regularly updated by Robin des Bois, and of which the newest version will be released at the end of next week.

Asbestos aboard

Asbestos aboard

LNG carrier Edouard LD owned by Gaz de France and Louis Dreyfus Armateurs is ill-fated to demolition. She is beyond limits. The average age of gas carriers when they are scrapped is 30. The Edouard LD is under French flag. In accordance to the French case-law, the Edouard LD has to be demolished in an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) country or outside OECD under the condition she would be subjected to a preliminary extraction of asbestos and other dangerous wastes. Edouard LD lightweight is 28.000 t, with a lot of non ferrous metals. She could be sold at 850 $ per ton at least in Bangladesh. She holds between 800 and 1,000 t of asbestos and asbestos-containing materials. To dodge the French rules, the French owners are considering to sell the Edouard LD to a Greek tanker fleet owner, Dynacom, whose other activity consists in speculative trading of ships to be demolished.
