The report gives results of a study to update estimates of atmospheric emissions of copper and copper compounds in the U.S. Source categories evaluated included: metallic minerals, primary copper smelters, iron and steel making, combustion, municipal incineration, secondary copper smelters, copper compound production, iron foundries, primary lead smelters, primary zinc smelters, ferroalloy production, brass/bronze production, and carbon black production. The study relied on data in published literature, supplemented by EPA test reports and data bases. The approach used to assess each source category involved: (1) estimating total particulate emissions, including fugitives; (2) determining the effect of air pollution control on emissions; (3) estimating the proportion of copper contained in the total particulates; and (4) estimating copper emissions. Copper emissions estimates are presented for each source category.
