Dioxin is the popular name for the family of chlorinated organic compounds comprising of Polychlorinated Dibenzo Furans (PCDF) and Polychlorinated Dibenzo Dioxins (PCDD).
PCDD/F's have been shown to bioaccumulate in humans and wildlife.
Dioxins and other Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are subject to the Stockholm Convention.
The treaty obliges signatories to take measures to eliminate where possible, and minimize where not possible to eliminate, all sources of dioxin.
