A literature and field study of the commercial explosives industry reveals that on the basis of products manufactured, plant size, and the nature of the wastewater, the industry may be divided into three segments. One, complex facilities, are large plants manufacturing a variety of explosives and intermediate products. The second category is small specialized formualtion plants, typically limited to blending explosives formulations for use in nearby mining activities. The final category is specialty product facilities, devoted to manufacture of select ingredients such as lead azide and other explosives initiators, blasting caps, electric matches and similar appurtenance items. Industrial processes, water pollution and abatement technology for these various plants and products are also surveyed.
