This study was made to evaluate the potential for environmental contamination by hexachlorobenzene and hexachlorobutadiene. Information acquisition and evaluation activities were designed to identify proven or potential sources of HCB and HCBD and the environmental and health effects of these substances. In addition to HCB and HCBD, this study included 21 other domestically produced chemicals which were either known sources of HCB and/or HCBD or theoretically capable of generating these substances as by-products, waste materials, or impurities in a commercial product. The scope of the study for each of these chemicals included identification of production sites and volumes, descriptions of manufacturing processes and environmental and health aspects, description of waste disposal methods, and identification of commercial uses for these products. An important goal was the recommendation of specific plant sites that should be monitored by EPA to determine if they were sources of significant discharges or emissions of HCB and/or HCBD into the environment.
