1,2-dichlorobenzene / Government of Canada, Environment Canada, Health Canada.: En40-215/33E-PDF

"1,2-Dichlorobenzene is produced in Canada and is also imported from other countries. Approximately 350 tonnes per year of this substance are currently used in Canada, primarily as a solvent for carbon removal, degreasing of engines, and metal cleaning. 1,2-Dichlorobenzene is present at measurable concentrations in industrial and municipal effluents, surface water and sediments in Canada, while detection in other environmental media, such as ambient air, ground water and soil, is infrequent. 1,2-Dichlorobenzene is not persistent in air or surface water, but persists and accumulates in sediment under anaerobic conditions"--Synopsis, page v.
