Thousands of businesses use hazardous substances in the course of producing goods or providing services. This report focuses on the waste generation and management of chlorinated solvents. These solvents are used widely in diverse industries, they pose a variety of health and environmental problems, they are currently under regulatory scrutiny, and they are among the first set of substances restri......

Discusses Army land vehicle maintenance data and data collection efforts, and describes the development of a general method for evaluating diagnostic aid systems.Differences among data sources are illustrated by a comparison of maintenance data for the 1/4 ton truck.The evaluation method is based on two assumptions:(1) that current vehicle operating and maintenance practices embody a number of pro......

The increasing reliance on various chemicals in all facets of society has led to a very high level of annual atmospheric emissions.Many of the emitted chemicals are dangerous; some may deplete the protective ozone layer, others contribute to photochemical smog, some are carcinogenic or mutagenic.Methods for minimizing the emissions of hazardous chemicals are actively being sought by U.S.government......

This report provides an assessment of chlorinated solvent use and waste generation in the dry cleaning industry. It summarizes the waste management practices in dry cleaning and extends them to other small-quantity generators (SQGs) of hazardous wastes. It focuses on alternatives to land disposal for a class of chemicals called chlorinated solvents, which pose a range of environmental and health p......

To determine the effects on and the role of industry in the event of implementation of a chemical weapons treaty, this report analyzes the way in which the proposed treaty can mesh with the U.S. regulatory system, examines whether and how existing reporting and inspection requirements or regulations can be used to facilitate domestic implementation, studies the domestic implementation procedures a......

Atmospheric models have suggested that cumulative emissions of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) pose a potential threat to the stratospheric ozone layer, but cumulative emissions can grow only if the supply of these chemicals is not constrained. Observers have suggested a wide range of potential supply constraints, two of which could have a significant effect on long-run cumulative emissions: (1) regula......

Concern over danger to the ozone layer led the Environmental Protection Agency to ban most chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) aerosol applications, but U.S. nonaerosol emissions could reach 600 million pounds annually by 1990. The report examines two strategies for controlling emissions, one based on mandatory controls, the other on economic incentives.Either could reduce accumulated emissions a modest 15 p......

This report is part of a series that develops and applies a general methodology for assessing the chronic health risks of toxic pollutant emissions.It applies the general framework and the computer program WTRISK to a study of a coal tar disposal site. The study investigates the potential health risks associated with emissions of organic chemicals from the site. However, because the analysis was i......

This report is the fifth in a series dealing with the human health risks of toxic substances emitted by coal-fired power plants. It summarizes two earlier studies that examined selenium and beryllium discharges from a power plant in Pennsylvania (the Montour Steam Electric Station operated by Pennsylvania Power and Light Company). The authors extend the earlier analysis to include calculation of p......
