Two industrial chemicals, Polychlorinated Napththalenes (PCN) and Hexachlorobutadiene (HCBD) have been recommended for inclusion in the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organics Pollutants (POPs). This recommendation has been made by the POPs Review Committee, a subsidiary body of the Stockholm Convention on POPs. If this recommendation if eventually ratified, PCN and HCBD are marked for eventual phase-out.
