Abstract
Approximately 334 million metric tons of industrial processing residues are generated annually with 10 to 15 percent being classified as hazardous by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Problems arising from improper disposal of these wastes are discussed along with several highly publicized examples including Love Canal in Niagara Falls, New York, and Valley of the Drums in Stump Gap Creek, Kentucky. Hazardous wastes are broken down by geographic regions and by industry. Waste waters and gaseous wastes are discussed as well as solid wastes. Sections on waste recycling, waste exchange, waste disposal options, and industrial discharges to publicly owned treatment works are included.
