  Dioxin Homepage
Dioxin is a general term that describes a group of hundreds of chemicals that are highly persistent in the environment.
Dioxin is formed as an unintentional by-product of many industrial processes involving chlorine such as waste incineration, chemical and pesticide manufacturing and pulp and paper bleaching.
Dioxin pollution is also affiliated with paper mills which use chlorine bleaching in their process and with the production of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) plastics and with the production of certain chlorinated chemicals (like many pesticides).

  FDA/CFSAN - Questions and Answers about Dioxins
Dioxins are formed as a result of combustion processes such as commercial or municipal waste incineration and from burning fuels (like wood, coal or oil).
Dioxins can also be formed when household trash is burned and as a result of natural processes such as forest fires.
Dioxins that remain in the environment from past releases are sometimes called "reservoir sources" of dioxins.
