Handbook on dangerous goods
Handbuch der gefährlichen Güter [in German]
This new instalment comprises separate data sheets on 202 additional hazardous substances. The new alphabetical index, which covers the 1st and 2nd instalments, contains the common names and synonyms of 414 substances in English, French and German. Apart from the formula and names of the substance, each data sheet provides information on the following points: physical properties; international regulations relating to transport by water, rail, road and air; appearance and smell; hazards related to the release of the substances and to their mixing with the atmosphere and water; health hazards and maximum allowable concentrations; safety measures to be taken in the danger zone in case of incident; first aid; medical notes. A graphic symbol called the "danger diamond" (diamond shape indicating the fire, explosion and health hazards) provides quick information on the degree of hazard for a given substance. A list of indicator tubes and lists of competent centres and hospitals for treating cases of poisoning and burns are appended.

Pollution abatement in a munitions plant.
Introductory considerations are followed by brief accounts of several industrial pollution control techniques, including (a) for air pollution: a molecular sieve system for a nitric acid plant and 2 acid scrubbing systems (for nitric acid and sulfuric acid); (b) for water pollution: chemical conversions for reusing sulphate ash (Na2SO4) waste and "pink water" produced during the manufacture and loading of TNT; (c) solid waste: various forms of emissions-controlled incineration for propellants.

Control of coke oven emissions by use of a closed pipeline charging system
Description of a new process which eliminates the emissions which take place during the charging of coke ovens and which usually represent 70% of total coke oven emissions. A closed pipeline system replaces the conventional larry charging car. Coal is dried and preheated in a continuous fluidised bed process, recovered in cyclone collectors and conveyed to the ovens through a pneumatic system where the gas used is superheated steam; this minimises fire and explosion hazards. Larry cars can be dispensed with and the oven lids remain sealed during charging operations, thus providing a marked improvement in safety and working conditions at the battery top. This is accompanied by a 45% increase in coke oven productivity.

Air pollution control of an electric furnace steelmaking shop
Detailed description of the double collection system installed at a plant of the Inland Steel Co. to control dust, fume and gas emissions from electric furnaces. Partitioned hoods are placed directly over each swing-roof furnace above the overhead travelling crane level and connected to an induced-draft system; the hot fumes rise into the hoods during the entire operating cycle. In addition, the fumes are evacuated directly from the furnace shells through a water-cooled duct system. Gases from the hoods and the ducts are mixed. The dust is collected in bag filters and agglomerated with water, and the cleaned gases are released outside.

Asbestos air pollution.
Findings of mesothelioma among persons living near asbestos plants have suggested for some time that asbestos air pollution might occur. Occurrence of such pollution is now established, although the size of the problem has not yet been defined. Epidemiological considerations indicate that it is improper to equate the several kinds of asbestos exposure. Discussion of the relation of asbestos lung burden to environmental asbestos disease in the light of various investigations, the identification of asbestos fibres and fibrils (particularly in chrysotile), the collection of air samples and the various sources of asbestos air pollution (natural, industrial and commercial).
