The catalog of Industrial Process Profiles for Environmental Use was developed as an aid in defining the environmental impacts of industrial activity in the U.S. Entries for each industry are in consistent format and form separate chapters of the study. Industrial organic chemicals are the product of at least one chemical reaction in this industry and will undergo at least one additional treatment step in a downstream processing industry. These compounds are intermediate materials in the manufacture of such products as plastics, synthetic fibers, pharmaceuticals and surfactants among others. The industry is discussed in terms of ten feedstock groups: benzene, butylenes, sources of cresylic acids, ethylene, methane, naphthalene, paraffins, propylene, toluene and xylenes. Ten chemical trees, ten process flow sheets and 365 process descriptions have been prepared to characterize the industry. Within each process description available data have been presented on function, input materials, operating parameters, utilities, waste streams, EPA Source Classification Code and references. Data related to the subject matter, including company, product and raw material data, are included as appendices. (Portions of this document are not fully legible)
