The catalog of Industrial Process Profiles for Environmental Use was developed as an aid in defining the environmental impacts of industrial activity in the United States. Entries for each industry are in consistent format and form separate chapters of the study. Synthetic fibers are defined as noncellulosic fiber of synthetic origin. The category includes manufactured fibers in which the fiber-forming substances is a long-chain, organic synthetic polymer. Cellulosic fibers such as rayon and acetate and the inorganic fibers such as boron, fiberglass, and graphite are excluded. Synthetic fiber industry activities start with a synthetic, long-chain polymer and terminate with the formation of a marketable filament or thread-like material. One process flow sheet and six process descriptions have been prepared to characterize the industry. Three of the process descriptions are involved with filament formation and three describe fiber treatment. Within each process description available data have been presented on input materials, operating parameters, utility requirements and waste streams. Data related to the subject matter, including company and product data, are included as appendices.
