Abstract

The study analyzed the phenomenon of productive specialization in industrial activities of high pollution potential (HPP). The objectives of the analysis were (a) to evaluate, from secondary data, the current importance of HPP industries for the State Rio Grande do Sul (RS/Brazil); and (b) to map in the territory these industries and to observe the spatial concentration of these activities. Therefore, it was analyzed employment data, establishments, production and export of industrial HPP activities, in the period 2007 and 2014. Although the results did not indicate substantial changes over these eight years, it was possible to establish an overview of the industry HPP in RS, which will form the basis for future research on the formation of pollution havens in RS.
