Guide for Industrial Waste Management

American industrial facilities generate and dispose of approximately 7.6 billion tons of industrial solid waste each year. This number was generated back in the 1980s and represents wastes generated from 17 different industry groups representing the manufacturing Standard Industrial Classification (SIC codes), such as organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals, primary iron and steel, plastics and resin manufacturing, stone, clay, glass and concrete, pulp and paper, food and kindred products.
