The studies were conducted for information purposes only and not in response to a Congressional regulatory mandate. As such, the studies serve to provide EPA with: (1) an initial data base concerning current and projected types and quantities of industrial wastes and applicable disposal methods and costs; (2) a data base for technical assistance activities; and (3) a background for guidelines development work pursuant to Sec. 209, Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended. The study had four basic objectives: To determine the nature and quantities of hazardous wastes originating from the pharmaceutical industry (1973) and to project these wastes to 1977 and 1983; To determine the current treatment and disposal practices within the industry; To examine improved control technologies which could be applied to reduce hazards presented by the wastes; and, To calculate the cost of implementing control technology in a typical hypothetical or existing plant.
