This document presents the findings of an extensive study of major inorganic chemicals manufacture for the purpose of developing effluent limitation guidelines for existing point sources and standards of performance and pretreatment standards for new sources. Effluent limitations guidelines contained herein set forth the degree of effluent reduction attainable through the application of the best practicable control technology currently available. Supporting data and rationale for development of the effluent limitations guidelines and standards of performance are contained in this report. Manufacturing and synthetic processes, wastes, control technology, and costs are discussed. Studies of a total of twenty-five chemicals are summarized, including: Aluminum chloride, aluminum sulfate, calcium carbide, calcium chloride, chlorine, hydrochloric acid, hydrogen peroxide, potassium sulfate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate (soda ash), sodium chloride, sodium dichromate, sodium hydroxide, sodium metal, hydrofluoric acid, calcium oxide and calcium hydroxide, nitric acid, potassium chromates, potassium hydroxide, potassium metal, sodium silicate, sodium sulfate, sodium sulfite, sulfuric acid, and titanium dioxide.
