This industry study is one of a series under the Office of Solid Waste Management Program of the Hazardous Waste Management Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The report concentrates on the rubber and plastics industry. It characterizes these industries in terms of number, location, size and age of plants, products, processes, etc.; identifies and quantifies those wastes which are or may be generated by these industries; describes current practices for treatment and disposal of potentially hazardous wastes; determines the control technologies which might be applied to reduce hazards presented by these wastes upon disposal; and estimates the cost of control technology implementations. The information presented in the report was acquired from a review of published information; trade association participation; personal contacts; visits to various plants and corporate offices of germane companies; waste sample analysis; and the application of an econometric model to project waste loads for 1977 and 1983.
"This report (SW-163c.2)--describes work performed for the Office of Solid Waste under contract no. 68-01-3194 and is reproduced as received from the contractor. The findings should be attributed to the contractor and not to the Office of Solid Waste."
