Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)

Study Plans Related to Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) in Schools

In response to concerns raised by the public about PCBs in schools, EPA scientists have been identifying and evaluating potential sources of PCBs in schools to better understand exposures to children, teachers and other school workers. EPA is also investigating methods to reduce or eliminate PCB emissions in schools.

These plans outline EPA's research on PCBs in school buildings and an evaluation of mitigation methods and source characterization on PCBs in caulk.
