The materials flow of arsenic in the United States.
Washington, DC: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 9382, 1994 Jan; :1-12
The report presents a U.S. Bureau of Mines study of the flow of arsenic-containing materials in the United States, based on the best data available in 1991. It includes a consideration of arsenic as a byproduct of the processing of nonferrous metals, the fate of arsenic in manufacturing wastes, the quantity of arsenic used in products, the fate of arsenic in dissipative uses, and the useful life of discarded products. Where possible, estimates are given of the amounts of arsenic lost from the materials flow.
