The role of cadmium (and its compounds) in the environment and in the economy of the United States was studied, to evaluate the need for and the projected effect of controlling its production, use and dissipation. Technologically and economically feasible control alternatives were developed from: (1) A systematic documentation of cadmium production, uses, prevalence, and sources of pollution; and (2) An evaluation of the present and projected health hazards. Available information was then used to directly compare and optimize the various alternatives. The results led to two sets of recommended controls. The first, aimed at preventing increases in the present cadmium health hazards, consists of continued air and water pollution abatement, environmentally-sound land disposal of industrial wastes and residuals, and regulation of application rates to agricultural lands of cadmium-bearing materials. The second set of controls exhibits a more aggressive posture towards limiting cadmium dissipation, which could be implemented in the future should a more precise definition of the health hazard justify such a posture.
