This report presents the results of a national study to evaluate the solid waste management practices of the industrial chemical industry, embodied by Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Number 281. Data and information on solid waste management within the industry were obtained through literature review, a questionnaire mailed to a selected group of industrial chemical plants, and field interviews with chemical plant personnel throughout the country. Presented in the report are the following information and data for the industrial chemical industry on a national basis: (1) quantity and quality (character) of solid waste generated; (2) universal parameters affecting solid waste generation; (3) current storage, collection, and disposal practices; (4) annual operating expenses; (5) analysis of the future trends in solid waste management within the industry and factors might influence them.
