This document is one of a series prepared for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assist it in determining those petrochemical processes for which standards should be promulgated. A total of nine petrochemicals produced by twelve distinctly different processes has been selected for this type of in-depth study. Ten volumes, entitled Engineering and Cost Study of Air Pollution Control for the Petrochemical Industry (EPA-450/3-73-006a through j) have been prepared. A combination of expert knowledge and an industry survey was used to select these processes. The industry survey has been published separately in a series of four volumes entitled Survey Reports on Atmospheric Emissions from the Petrochemical Industry (EPA-450/3-73-005a, b, c, and d). This volume covers the manufacture of polyvinyl chloride. Included is a process and industry description, an engineering description of available emission control systems and the cost of these systems.
