NSRP ASE Investment: $92K
As a proactive measure to assist with the in-progress update to the EPA emissions regulation, this effort identified and assessed electrodes that are commonly used for welding in all types of shipbuilding activities. The electrodes were prioritized based on overall use, lack of current high quality emission factors and potential for emitting Hexavalent Chromium and Manganese, the elements of greatest concern to environmental regulators. Finally, emissions factors were developed using a comprehensive test program.
