This document contains an evaluation of the radionuclides related issues connected with the operation of the Oak Ridge Mixed Waste Incinerator (ORMWI). Subjects examined were (1) review of ORMWI National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) limits for radionuclides; (2) need for additional data; (3) the distribution of impurities between air, blowdown water, and ash; and (4) Chlorine-36 rationale. Recommended actions were to determine the uranium distribution to the stack, scrubber water, and ash as soon as possible; the NESHAP feed limits may need to be renegotiated with the regulators; and improve analytical procedures to obtain maximum practical sensitivity and discrimination between radionuclides.
