The study demonstrates a procedure for projecting the hazardous waste shipped off-site by industry. The projection system develops ratios of hazardous waste per employee by SIC code. These ratios can be used to estimate the hazardous waste shipped off-site for any industrial area in the United States. Wastes are categorized for each SIC code, and treatment technology options are designated for each classification. The specific New Jersey Industrial Waste Study projects that in five years New Jersey industry will ship 558,000 tons of hazardous waste off-site per year. The study indicates that incineration with multi-purpose rotating kilns would be the most practical method of treatment for the largest amount of waste disposed of at a regional facility. It is further indicated that secure landfill will be needed, primarily for heavy metals. Economics for treatment options are also presented.
