The public water information service defines adsorbable organohalogen compounds (AOX) as organic chemicals that contain one or more carbon bonds chlorine (or bromine, fluorine, iodine). Organohalogenates are industrially manufactured and marketed in products as diverse as plant protection products, plastics, solvents, lubricants, refrigerants or propellants, pharmaceuticals, dielectrics in capacitors, additives in paints and coatings. inks, etc. Organochlorine compounds are also formed not from a voluntary manufacturing process but as by-products. The industrial sectors likely to be concerned are various and the substances in question sometimes poorly identified. These include the sectors of electrical cable recycling (when burning the PVC insulating coating) or pulp (chlorine bleaching).
