The purpose of this project was to prepare a manual that provides guidance on preventing spills of hazardous substances in fixed facilities that produce substances from raw or starter materials, store the substances, or transfer the substances to and from transportation terminals. The emphasis is on smaller-sized chemical manufacturing facilities. The manual consists of seven sections and an Appendix: 1. Introduction; 2. Manual of Practice; 3. Hazardous Substances and Their Characteristics; 4. Fixed Facilities; 5. Facility Spill Prevention Practices; 6. Preventive Engineering Practices; and 7. Bibliography. The appendix contains descriptions of fixed facility chemical processing equipment components, from which a checklist of equipment items interacting with hazardous substances can be derived for use in preparing a Spill Prevention Plan.Hazard (s), in Addition to Toxicity 1 , 2-Di bromo-3-chl oropro- pane (Note 2) Al iphatics, halogenated 96- -12-8 Combustible w/toxic products Di-n-butylphthalate Esters 84- -74-2 Potential carcinogen Dichlorobenzene (all i somers) Aromatics, anbsp;...
