Chlorine Institute Issues New Chlorine Release Modeling Data

Today the Chlorine Institute published an updated version of their Pamphlet 74 - Guidance On Estimating the Area Affected By A Chlorine Release. Revisions have been based, at least in part, on the data produced by the Jack Rabbit test program conducted by the DHS Transportation Security Administration in 2010. The second round of testing (Jack Rabbit II) will be conducted later this summer.

I will be going through Pamphlet 74 in some detail this weekend. It will be interesting to see if the EPA will be updating its RMP*Comp program that is used to determine (for planning purposes) the distance of concern for releases of toxic chemicals. Actual field test data and models based upon that data should provide a better estimate of the distance of concern.
