Approx. 1,400 kg of Apirolio, an extremely toxic insulating oil mixture, containing polychlorobiphenyls (75.6%) and polychlorobenzenes (24.2%) with traces of dioxins and furans, were accidentally spilled by a truck transporting an electric transformer, along 12 kms of SS 16 bis speedway on Dec. 7th, 1988. After immediate off-limiting of the accident area, a reclamation strategy was adopted that, based on accurate analytical survey of the contaminated environments (asphalt, agricultural soil, trees, produce, groundwater), allowed safe decontamination of the area.

Abstract

Approx. 1,400 kg of Apirolio, an extremely toxic insulating oil mixture, containing polychlorobiphenyls (75.6%) and polychlorobenzenes (24.2%) with traces of dioxins and furans, were accidentally spilled by a truck transporting an electric transformer, along 12 kms of SS 16 bis speedway on Dec. 7th, 1988. After immediate off-limiting of the accident area, a reclamation strategy was adopted that, based on accurate analytical survey of the contaminated environments (asphalt, agricultural soil, trees, produce, groundwater), allowed safe decontamination of the area.
