Nine industrial plants were sampled to determine hexachlorobenzene (HCB) levels in air, water, soil and sediment. The plants represent six major industries: perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, carbon tetrachloride, chlorine, triazine herbicides, and pentachloronitrobenzene. In general, higher levels of HCB were associated with the production of lower chlorinated hydrocarbons than with the production of other chemicals. HCB levels in soil and air at the pentachloronitrobenzene plant were relatively high. The levels of HCB associated with plants producting chlorine and triazine herbicides were very low. Several different waste-disposal methods were used at the perchloro- and trichloroethylene plants that were sampled. The highest level of HCB was detected in air and soil at the plant using on-site landfill and open pit storage. High HCB levels were detected in loading and transfer areas at plants using off-site disposal methods. Samples were collected from two sewage treatment plants; negligible quantities of HCB were detected.
