Título Report on industrial waste management project in Tema. Part 1
Información bibliográfica Department of Factories Inspectorate, Ministry of Mobilization and Social Welfare, P.O. Box 62, Tema, Ghana, 1992. v, 48p. 7 ref.
Resumen Part 1 of this report presents the results of an investigation into waste disposal in the textile, paint, soap and metal extraction industries in Tema, Ghana. Analysis of liquid effluents from all factories showed that mercury concentrations were far above the standard values of five comparable countries; daily average concentrations of other trace metals were slightly above the comparative standard values. Gaseous emissions (including sulfur dioxide, chlorine, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen fluoride) were not quantified. Solid wastes showed high concentrations of lead, mercury, chromium, manganese and aluminium. A number of recommendations are made for the prevention, reduction and treatment of waste effluents.
