The objective of this program were identification of the potential hazards associated with the production and use of industrial organic chemicals (IOC) and organic dyes and pigments (ODP) and determination of the state of the art of the control and treatment of potentially hazardous waste generated during manufacture and use of these materials. The major study outputs are comprehensive master tables of 510 IOC, 142 ODP raw materials, 722 ODP intermediates and 1458 dyes and pigments containing correlated compounds identification, toxicity data, chemical production process information. Eight 'priority rating' lists containing chemicals ranked in order of quantitative toxicity or production data and twelve 'priority' lists with chemicals presented alphabetically were extracted from the master tables. Although about 150 compounds are thus shown to pose potential toxic hazards, the toxicity data were found to vary widely in both availability, and in precision where available in replicate. Consequently these simplistically prepared lists must be used with caution. Pollution control and waste treatment technologies applicable to these industries are discussed and summarized, but 'best' technologies for specific compounds/processes are not specified.
