Information is provided regarding the nature, magnitude, and extent of the emissions of barium in the United States for the year 1969. Background information concerning the basic characteristics of the barium (barite) industry has been assembled and included. Brief process descriptions are given; they are limited to the areas that are closely related to existing or potential atmospheric losses of the pollutant. Emissions to the atmosphere during the year were 15,420 tons. Nearly 18 percent of the emissions resulted from the processing of barite, more than 28 percent from the production of chemicals, 23 percent from the manufacture of various end products, and about 26 percent from the combustion of coal. The wear of rubber tires was a relatively minor emission source.
