Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The data on environmental distribution of dichloromethane obtained from the level III fugacity model confirms that dichloromethane does not degrade fast and depending on various emission scenarios, most of dichloromethane will be phisically removed (advected) from the environment.
