The purposes of the study were to identify the production methods, importation, exportation, use patterns, and exposure to man and the environment of selected inorganic cyanides, including hydrogen cyanide, from 1965 to 1975. Data for the production methods included the specific process, raw materials, annual production quantities, major manufacturers, waste products, environmental management of process wastes, and other production data. Use patterns were identified and annual consumption data were compiled for each compound in the respective area of utilization. Major consumers in each use area were identified. Various possible methods for the exposure of man and the environment to inorganic cyanides were discussed and evaluated. Future production quantities and areas of usage were estimated to 1985.
