PCBs in the Built Environment: Exposure Assessment and Mitigation Strategies (AIHce EXP 2015 OnDemand)

Session Arranger and Moderator: A. Ashley, TRC Environmental Corporation

A growing body of evidence worldwide suggests that materials such as paints, caulks, sealants and other building materials may be a significant source of PCB exposure to people living or working in buildings where these materials are present. Evaluating the nature of the risk posed by these materials is currently challenged by a lack of exposure assessment data among the exposed groups and limited understanding of the emission factors associated with different PCB- containing building materials. The development of additional exposure data for indoor environments would allow for a better understanding of the overall risk from PCBs in the built environment as compared to PCB exposures from ambient (i.e. outdoor air and water sources) and dietary exposure pathways. Exposure assessment and source emission data is also an integral part in the evaluation of proposed methods to mitigate the risks associated with PCBs in the built environment..
