A comprehensive review of the literature published since 1 January 1954 was conducted to prepare this preliminary report on the physical and chemical properties of titanium dioxide (TiO2), on the environmental exposure factors related to its consumption and use, on the health and environmental effects resulting from exposure to TiO2, and on the regulations and standards governing its use. Current problems include concern about the future availability of rutile ore to supply the increasing number of facilities using this ore in the chloride manufacturing process, and the disposal of the high volume of TiO2 manufacturing wastes, particularly the spent sulfuric acid and ferrous sulfate from the sulfate manufacturing process. On the basis of reported information, TiO2 does not pose substantial environmental hazard.
