Naturally occurring radioactivity was measured in the atmospheric emissions and process materials of a thermal phosphate (elemental phosphorus) plant. Representative exhaust stack samples were collected from each process in the plant. The phosphate ore contained 12 to 20 parts per million uranium. Processes, emission points, and emission controls are described. Radioactivity concentrations and emission rates from the sources sampled are given.
