The precision for odds ratio from the two-pollutant models was only slightly worse than in single-pollutant models, despite the inclusion of correlated air toxics, the maximum partial correlation being 0.93 for xylenes and ethyl benzene.

Olefins, styrene, polystyrene, polystyrene-resistant, linear low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, ethyl benzene, butene - 1, benzene, butadiene-1, 3 and the ABS products are the main products of the plant which covers 391 hectares of land near the northwestern city of Tbariz.
The aromatic hydrocarbons (Benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, propylbenzene, and butylbenzene) are important industrial chemicals.
Fuel products such as benzene, toluene ethyl benzene, and xylenes (BTEX) and fuel additives such as methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) are among the organic pollutants commonly detected in water resources.
The Del Amo Superfund site, located adjacent to the Montrose site, was formerly a synthetic rubber manufacturing facility that used benzene, naphthalene and ethyl benzene. Groundwater contamination from both sites has co-mingled and will be cleaned up by this single treatment system.
