The report deals exclusively with the industrial, or 'pre-consumer' part of the polymer solid waste problem. It explores the nature and extent of the problem in the United States for that segment of the plastics industry representing the largest product tonnage; namely, the segment dealing in the production and fabrication of the principal thermoplastics. It presents technical and economic information on polymer waste disposal methods in actual use, and evaluates alternative approaches to polymer solid waste disposal. (Author)
