Abstract 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 about 120 parts per million uranium. The radioactivity emitted in greatest quantity was radon-222 with an annual release from the plant of 8.3 curies. Emissions of lead-210 and polonium-210 were measured at 280 and 200 millicuries per year. Annual emissions of each of the other radionuclides of the uranium decay chain were estimated to be 4.2 millicuries. The slag pile was determined not to be a source of radon.
