Emissions to atmosphere by chrome platers

Chromium Plating

I need to find some information on the amount of chrome emissions into the atmosphere by chrome platers annually in us. If through epa, what directory would I look in? Thanks

Hi, K. Sorry your question hasn't been answered. The readers usually will respond more enthusiastically when they know what cause their effort will advance. How does the question impact you?

Meanwhile, a document that may be somewhat informative if possibly not exactly the answer you are looking for is: "NIOSH Technical Report, Control Technology Assessment: Metal Plating and Cleaning Operations", U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services document no. 85-102. It does contain emission quantities for a number of chrome plating shop. Good luck.
