- NIVA-rapport 
This investigation take accound of phosphorus flame retardants (PFRs), polyfluorinated organic compounds (PFCs), nitro-PAHs, silver, platinum, and sucralose in air, samples from wastewater treatment facilities, seawater, marine and freshwater sediment, blue mussel and cod liver taken in 2007 (with the exception of 2 sediment samples from 2003). The survey covers 54 individual compounds and 2 metals from 59 sites, of which 5 are for air sampling, 22 for wastewater treatment facilities, 3 for freshwater sediment and 29 for the marine environment. Samples of air also included dust and road dust. Waste treatment facilities included domestic wastewater treatments plants, a landfill, a car demolishing site and a fire fighting test site. The report should be a guideline in the planning of environmental monitoring where these substances are concerned.
