Substance Flow Analysis of Resorcinol


The yearly turnover of resorcinol in Denmark ia from 6 to 23 tons. It is primarily used in products from which there is no emission. The use is in rubber products (e.g. conveyor belts), in production of laminated wood constructions and high quality plywood and in chemical synthesis of unknown products. Resorcinol is also used in hair dying products, where it is used as a so called coupler. The exposure of an adult person from this usage is calculated to be 1 mg/hairdying proces.
