The purpose of this supplemental report is to provide information that will allow the EPA to know the tolerable concentrations of carbon disulfide and carbonyl sulfide in the ambient air. Carbon disulfide (CS2) and carbonyl sulfide (COS) are volatile substances of moderate toxicity, odor, and environmental lifetimes (days). Vapors emitted from sources are expected to follow normal atmospheric dispersion principles. The contents of the report include: Chemical and physical properties; Environmental exposure factors; Estimates of ambient air concentrations; Health and welfare effects; and, Environmental quality aspects.
