Abstract
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. The Plasticizer Industry includes manufacturers who produce primary synthetic organic plasticizers. Manufacturers who refine or otherwise upgrade natural plasticizers such as mineral oil or castor oil are not included. Plasticizers are materials which are added to organic polymers to facilitate processing, to modify the properties of the product, or both. In many cases, the distinction between plasticizers and other additives, such as extender oils, flame retardants, processing aids, and lubricants are often blurred. Three process flow sheets and three process descriptions have been prepared to characterize the industry. 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.
