This report presents a methodology for estimating multimedia environmental loadings of a 'new' organic chemical (Section 2), the output data of which can be used to determine population exposure (within and without the manufacturing process plant battery limits) and to isolate the most suitable control options. A methodology is presented for estimating the multimedia environmental loadings for a 'new' chemical, in the absence of manufacturing plant emission data. The methodology draws on an environmental release data base that contains multimedia environmental loadings for structurally similar compounds that undergo similar process (physical and chemical) unit operations. The data base is integrated with other pertinent available data on the manufacturing process of the new chemical. The methodology integrates all pertinent data to enable the user to estimate multimedia (controlled and uncontrolled) environmental loadings under the classifications of storage and handling, process and fugitive emissions, respectively. An example is provided to demonstrate the methodology's applicability.
