Background article HCH in EU (part 1)

History and usage of HCH

Lindane (Gamma HCH), a Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) is very harmful to people and the environment.

Since 2009 the production and use of Lindane is prohibited in the EU. However, in the past it has been produced and used for decades. But what exactly is Lindane and what did we use it for?

In the coming period we will publish three background articles where we will go deeper into Lindane/HCH to understand the origin and impact of contaminated sites.
