The catalog was developed to aid in defining the environmental impacts of U.S. industrial activity. Entries for each industry are in consistent format and form separate chapters of the catalog. The pesticides industry produces organic chemicals used: to control agricultural pests, to disinfect and condition soil, and as plant hormones. The inorganic chemicals, petroleum products, and creosote used as pesticides are specifically excluded from this chapter. The industry is discussed in 12 segments: simple and aromatic chlorinated hydrocarbons; diene-based; organophosphates; carbamates and thiocarbamates; triazines; anilides; ureas and uracils; nitrated hydrocarbons; other nitrogenous; organoarsenicals and organometallics; microbial or natural derivatives; and others. Thirteen chemical trees, 17 process flow sheets, and 37 process descriptions characterize the industry. For each process description, available data is presented on input materials, operating parameters, utility requirements, and waste streams. Related information, provided as appendices, includes company, product, and raw material data.
