PFCAs Detected in the Artic

ch involved the testing of six consumer and industrial products such as carpet stain repellents and windshield washer fluid, they found levels of the fluorotelomer alcohols as high as 4 per cent.

Hence the researchers said that the products themselves were the source of pollution and turning the residual tap will solve the pollution problem of chemicals in the Arctic. It was found that the annual emissions of at least 100,000 kilograms of fluorotelomer alcohols resulted in substantial amount of the PFCAs being found in the Artic.

Tom Harner, an Environment Canada research scientist in Downsview, said that they are called as domestic Persistent Organic Pollution (POPs) because there are many sources in the home.

In the winter of 2002-2003, Harner and colleagues found that there was an increase in the brominated flame retardants in Ottawa. They also found a type of fluorinated polymers known as FOSEs, whose concentrations were 10 to 20 times higher than in the outdoor air.

Researchers say that ocean currents are responsible for transporting fluorinated polymers that were dumped by factories previously. But Mabury says that it is through the air that the compound spreads and had reached the Arctic.
