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 synthetic rubber industry is comprised of companies which produce a synthetic vulcanized elastomer by polymerization or copolymerization of monomers derived from petroleum or natural gas. The industry is discussed in three operations: (1) Emulsion Crumb Production, (2) Latex Production, and (3) Solution Crumb Production. Three process flow sheets and seventeen 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 related to the subject matter, including company, product and raw material data, are included as appendices.
