The report addresses the selection of relevant factors to gain perspective of the pollution potential from pesticides manufacturing and formulating operations and leads to the evolvement and defense of decision criteria for assessing the need for development of emissions control technology. Pesticides manufacturing and formulating operations are treated as materials input/output systems, with chemical wastes identified for all media. From about 300 active pesticide ingredients, six candidates (representing five different chemical classifications) were chosen for detailed source assessment. The pesticides industry is characterized and quantified where possible, using available information. Data give a macroeconomic view of the pesticides manufacturing and formulating operations. Government regulatory pressure and posture is identified and assessed. Appendices contain much information on the pesticides industry from several viewpoints.
