The paper presents uncontrolled air toxic emission factors for different process operations in a gray iron foundry. The emission factors are based on the results of on-site test measurements available in the literature. The emission factors are presented for organic and inorganic componds emitted from cupolas, electric are furnaces, electric induction furnaces, inoculation, casting, sand shakeout, and core making. Because the number of test measurements reported in the literature is severely limited, the factors should be used with caution.
