This report serves as a background information document in support of the Environmental Protection Agency's final rules for sources of emissions of radionuclides pursuant to Section 112 of the Clean Air Act. This report presents an analysis of the public health impact caused by radionuclides emitted into the air from facilities that are the subject of this rulemaking. These facilities are examined as six major source categories: (1) Department of Energy (DOE) facilities, (2) Nuclear Regulatory Commission licensed facilities and non-DOE Federal facilities, (3) coal-fired utility and industrial boilers, (4) uranium mines, (5) phosphate industry facilities, and (6) mineral extraction industry facilities. For each source category, the authors present the following information: (1) a general description of the source category, (2) a brief description of the processes that lead to the emissions of radionuclides into air, (3) a summary of emissions data, and (4) estimates of the radiation doses and health risks to both individuals and populations.
