Title: NESHAPs compliance tasks for the PUREX plant

The Plutonium-Uranium Extraction (PUREX) plant is in transition to shutdown, with decontamination and decommissioning to be completed in 1998. During this transition, implementation of some new regulations is continuing. Regulated stacks are required to be in compliance with the Clean Air Act National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) (40 CFR 61, Subpart H). Recent tasks included certification of the PUREX main stack flow measurement system, stack radionuclide particulate sampler line loss studies, and radionuclide source term calculations.
