The report contains procedures and example calculations for estimating air emissions that occur from treating contaminated material at Superfund sites. Emission factors for six treatment technologies are presented. These are: (1) Thermal Treatment, (2) Air Stripping, (3) Soil Vapor Extraction, (4) Solidification and Stabilization, (5) Physical and Chemical Treatment, and (6) Biotreatment and Land Treatment. For each of the six technologies, a literature review was conducted to develop a flow diagram and identify emission points, as well as to analyze available air emissions data. For most of the technologies examined, emission factors were based on available data as well as assumed 'typical' operating conditions. Where possible, however, emission factors were presented on actual operating data from the site studies. Emission factors are presented for volatile organic compounds (VOC), metals, particulate matter, SO2, NOx, CO, HCl, and HF. The report also contains an extensive bibliography related to waste treatment technologies.
