In February 2000, a detailed emissions measurement campaign was conducted over a 2-week period at the Olin Corporation's mercury chlor-alkali plant in Augusta, GA. The purpose of these tests was to identify and measure mercury (Hg) emissions from major sources within the facility, determine Hg concentrations at various locations and in multiple media, and characterize the air flow from the cell building. The research program was a collaborative effort between EPA's National Risk Management Research Laboratory, National Exposure Research Laboratory, Regions 4 and 5, and Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance; Oak Ridge National Laboratory; the University of Michigan; Olin Corporation; and the Chlorine Institute. This paper describes the organization and implementation of the study. Since data analysis efforts are continuing, study results will be provided later.
