A literature and field study of the manufacture of inorganic pesticides revealed that many inorganic formulations are still widely used for agricultural purposes. The inorganic pesticide industry's manufacturing processes and wastewaters contrast sharply with those associated with organic pesticides. The inorganic pesticide market is dominated by eight products (zinc sulfate, sulfur, sodium borates, sodium chlorate, sodium arsenite, lead arsenate, copper sulfate, and calcium arsenate), each of which is discussed in this report with respect to its manufacturing effluent characteristics and applicable pollution control technology. Based upon field studies, it has been demonstrated that five of the eight products can be manufactured without generating any process wastewater. Aqueous effluents from the manufacture of the remaining three inorganic pesticides appear to be directly controllable by previously demonstrated in-plant control and/or wastewater treatment technologies.
