The report gives results of a comprehensive emissions assessment of the Haynes No. 5 boiler during oil-firing. Levels 1 and 2 procedures were used to characterize pollutant emissions. Assessment results, in conjunction with assumed typical and worst case meteorological conditions, were used to estimate the environmental impact of emissions from this type of unit. Principal conclusions were: (1) The risk of violating NAAQS due to criteria pollutant emissions is low. (2) Little adverse health effect is anticipated as a result of SO2, SO4 (--), and particulate emissions projected from widespread use of oil-fired units of the type tested. (3) The impact of trace element burdens in drinking water, plant tissue, soil, and the atmosphere is negligible. (4) The risk of plant damage due to criteria pollutant emissions is remote. (5) The likelihood of plant damage due to trace element emissions is remote.
