A literature and field study of the inorganic gas industry revealed that the industry is dominated by (1) air separation plants producing argon, nitrogen and/or oxygen, (2) hydrogen plants and (3) carbon dioxide plants. The major effluent of the industry is cooling water, which may be contaminated with raw product condensates, oil and grease, and water supply and cooling water treatment chemicals. Spent scrubber solutions from product purification may also constitute a significant waste, although newer production technology eliminates this aspect, as well as oil and grease. Control and abatement strategies are briefly discussed.
