Mass Flow Analysis of Chromium and Chromium Compounds


The consumption of chromium and chromium compounds in Denmark in 1999 was 25,000-30,000 tons/year - of which more than 50% was used as metallic chromium, and the remaining quantity as chromium compounds and as trace constituents; the consumption of chromium(VI) compounds is considered to fall, and is estimated at 50-53 tons/year. Chromium in waste is largely recycled together with iron, aluminium and copper, while this is not the case with chromium compounds. A survey was also made of emissions to air, soil and water, and to landfills.
