In conducting the assessment of the pollution sources and control measures utilized by the food processing industries (those industries listed under SIC 20), the water pollution control, air pollution control and solid waste management practices of 19 specific food processing industries were reviewed. The 19 industries analyzed represent in excess of 75% of the total value of shipments by the food processing industries. One specific objective of the assessment was to identify any potential toxic substances emission problems. The method of approach used in conducting the study was to prepare process descriptions on a unit operations basis for each industry and to identify the sources of emissions and effluents from each major step in the process. These process descriptions along with a general industry description are contained in 18 unpublished appendices available from the EPA Food and Wood Products Branch in Cincinnati, Ohio. The published volume of the report and its eight published appendices discuss the major sources of water pollution, air pollution, and solid wastes from the food processing industries. The appendices address specific topics such as SOx emissions, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, phenolic compounds, and water reuse (including pesticides).
