Using 1970 as the key year, the report covers the air pollution by processes which use nitric acid. It does not cover air pollution by nitric acid production, or the nitric acid treatment by the fertilizer industry of phosphate rock. The study identifies the air pollutants from 15 selected major nitration processes, estimates the present and future quantities of pollutants, evaluates the applicability of control devices presently used in nitric acid production for controlling the air pollutants from the nitration processes, and recommends research and development objectives for the monitoring and controlling of these air pollutants. The compounds produced and which are covered include: Ammonium nitrate; Adipic acid; Terephthalic acid; Acrylonitrile; Nitrobenzene; Dinitrotoluene; Nitrochlorobenzene; Oxalic acid; Nitroparaffins; Nitrocellulose; Nitroglycerine; Trinitrotoluene; Potassium nitrate; and Sodium nitrite.
