The present document summarizes the results of the National Inventory for identification and quantification of POPs pesticides. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the Bulgarian situation concerning the presence of Persistent Organic Pollutants - aldrin, dieldrin, endrin, mirex, toxaphene, hexachlorbenzene, heptachlor, chlordane and DDT. Strong adverse effects of POPs releases (even in trace concentrations, but continuously and spread all over the country) to the environment and human health require more attention to be given especially for optimization of the technological conditions. Different disposal options are proposed. [BG].
