Viet Nam has experienced the significant impacts of dioxin pollution in the world. Large quantities of herbicides, most of which were contaminated with dioxin, were used in the war over the period of 1961-1971. The soil dioxin concentration in sprayed areas has declined to background level; however, a few sites at the airports where the herbicides, mainly Agent Orange (AO), were stored and/or handled are still highly contaminated. To date, dioxin ‘hotspots’ with contamination levels exceeding national dioxin limits (1,000 pg I-TEQ/g) have been identified on three airport that were used as military bases during the war, namely Bien Hoa, Da Nang and Phu Cat airbase.
