Major air and water pollutant control strategies are identified which are of current National concern. Emphasis is on artificial transfer between air or water. Natural transfers are not treated in depth and land is considered only as a means for residue disposal. Discussions include dangers of intermedia transfer from land to air or water. Control methods for each intermedia pollutant are discussed; comparative costs and expected unit process efficiencies are given. Residue disposal methods and problems are presented. Institutional factors, regulations and strategies for pollution control are summarized and discussed. Summary data are developed for major pollutants and residues discharged nationally and in the California South Coast Region, along with product/pollutant ratios for industries represented by the Standard Industrial Classification Code and other public economic sectors. The framework for a mathematical model is developed for the prediction of the effects of change in any of the elements of the production-consumption-pollution-regulation network.
