The report gives an overview of air pollution emission levels and a ranking of the public health hazard potential of textile manufacturing operations. The textile industry was defined and categorized by Bureau of the Census Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Codes. Flow charts of production were developed along with production rates per SIC code. Sources of emissions were defined and emission quantities computed on the basis of an extensive literature survey and engineering analysis. Mass emissions from textile sources were determined on a state-by-state and national basis for criteria pollutants (carbon monoxide, particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and sulfur dioxide). The health hazard potential of each source was quantified through impact factors based on downwind exposure to concentrations of pollutants in relation to hazard factors for those pollutants.
