||Most EPA libraries have a fiche copy filed under the call number shown. Check with individual libraries about paper copy.
||The purpose of the document is to provide information supporting the procedures developed for NRC-licensed and non-DOE Federal facilities to use in demonstrating compliance with the radionuclides NESHAP (National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants) (40 CFR 61, Subpart I). Specifically, the Background Information Document has the following objectives: to provide the basis for the calculational and analytical methods approved for determining emissions; and to provide the basis for the procedures approved for demonstrating compliance with the dose limits of the standard. Particular emphasis is given to the derivation and use of emission factors to estimate the quantities of material handled that become airborne and to the adjustment factors for effluent controls, which may be applied to the quantities to estimate emissions. Within the restrictions given, these emission factors and effluent control adjustment factors may be used in lieu of measured release rates in determining compliance with the standard.
