A sampling and analysis program was conducted to determine the extent of environmental contamination by hexachlorobutadiene around nine chemical manufacturers. The plants selected represented six major industries: perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, carbon tetrachloride, chlorine, triazine herbicides, and pentachloronitrobenzene. Air, water, soil, and sediment samples were collected on and around the plants. In general, higher levels of HCBD in air were associated with production of perchloroethylene and trichloroethylene while the level in the vicinity of chlorine and triazine herbicide plants was very low. No HCBD was found in the air at the pentachloronitrobenzene plant. The highest level of HCBD in air and soil was at a plant using on-site landfill and open pit storage waste-disposal methods. High levels were detected in loading and transfer areas at plants using off-site disposal methods.
