This report reviews and evaluates available information pertinent to an assessment of benzene contamination of the environment. Benzene losses from commercial (production and use) and non-commercial (automotive emissions and oil spills) sources were considered. It is estimated that of the total quantity that is released to the environment more than half results from motor vehicle emissions. Monitoring data somewhat support this contention. Available information on the environmental persistence of benzene suggests that it degrades slowly.
