Less chemicals in your water

The EU parliament yesterdat voted for a legislation that increases the list of chemicals to be monitored in water. The water you drink will thus be less toxic in the long run. Or so is the idea I would assume.

The legislation lists substances of which some are priority hazardous substances and has to be phased out within 20 years. Here is the list of priority and priority hazardous substances.

The priority hazardous substances are:
  • Anthracene
  • Pentabromobiphenylether
  • Cadmium and its compounds
  • C10-13-chloroalkanes
  • Endosulfan
  • Hexachlorobenzene
  • Hexachlorobutadiene
  • Hexachlorocyclohexane
  • Mercury and its compounds
  • Nonylphenols
  • Pentachlorobenzene
  • Polyaromatic hydrocarbons
  • Tributyltin compounds

    See, the world really is starting to come to its senses :-)
