The catalog of Industrial Process Profiles for Environmental Use was developed as an aid in defining the environmental impacts of industrial activity in the United States. Entries for each industry are in consistent format and form separate chapters of the study. The Brine and Evaporite Chemicals Industry encompasses all first-level inorganic compounds derived from subterranean brines, from existing or historic salt lakes, and from sea water. Certain second-level inorganic compounds derived from these sources are included when produced in the same facility as the parent compound. The industry is discussed in six segments: (1) Borax and Boric Acid, (2) Chlorine-Caustic, (3) Lithium Chemicals, (4) Magnesium Metal, (5) Potash and (6) Sodium Metal. One chemical tree, twenty-two process flow sheets, and sixty-seven process descriptions have been prepared to characterize the industry. Within each process description available data have been presented on input materials, operating parameters, utility requirements and waste streams. Data relating to the subject matter, including company, product and raw material data, are included as appendices.
