The report gives results of an assessment of the magnitude of the waste chlorohydrocarbon problem in the U.S., and a study of the applicability of the conversion of this waste by chlorolysis as a means of resolving the problem. An estimated 86,400 metric tons per year of chlorohydrocarbon waste is generated in the U.S. A portion of this waste is treated by chlorolysis to solvents, and by incineration. The balance is disposed of by deep well injection or burial. The identified waste is a suitable feedstock for a chlorolysis operation if it is pretreated to remove particulate materials and moisture. Geographically, the waste is generated primarily along the Gulf Coast, from Corpus Christi to New Orleans. The Gulf Coast concentration indicates that a regional waste disposal facility (including a chlorolysis unit, a waste pretreatment unit, and a conventional incineration unit) would be viable. Preparation of a design and firm capital estimate is recommended as the next step in an overall program leading to such a regional facility.
