Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 233 / Monday, December 6, 2010 / Notices II. Summary of Draft Supplement to the EA jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES Pa’ina’s license authorizes it to use byproduct material (sealed radioactive sources) in a pool irradiator to be located adjacent to Honolulu International Airport, Honolulu, Hawaii. The irradiator would be used for the production and research irradiation of food, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical products. Pa’ina’s license request was previously noticed in the Federal Register on August 2, 2005 (70 FR 44396), with a notice of an opportunity to request a hearing. The staff prepared an EA in support of its review of the license application. The staff considered impacts to areas such as public and occupational health, transportation, socioeconomics, ecology, water quality, and the effects of aircraft crashes and natural phenomena. The staff has prepared a Draft Supplement to the EA as directed by the Board. In the first area identified by the Board, the staff found that accidents occurring during the transport of cobalt60 to or from Pa’ina’s proposed irradiator will not cause a significant impact to the environment. This is due primarily to the very low likelihood cobalt-60 will be released from a shipping package. The low likelihood of release is due to several factors, including the small number of cobalt-60 shipments to Pa’ina’s irradiator and the stringent safety requirements for the design of cobalt-60 shipping packages. In the second area identified by the Board, the staff found that the environmental impacts of an electronbeam irradiator will be small for each resource area. The staff also found that the impacts will not be significantly different than those associated with construction and operation of a cobalt60 irradiator. In the third area identified by the Board, the staff found that impacts associated with construction and operation of a cobalt-60 irradiator at alternative sites will be small and will not be significantly different than those at the proposed site. In particular, the staff found that aircraft crashes involving the alternative sites will have no significant impact on public health and safety. The staff also found that environmental impacts from earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes at the alternative locations will be small. Publicly available documents created or received at the NRC, including the Draft Supplement to the EA, the August 10, 2007, EA, and the Pa’ina license and supporting documentation, are available electronically at the NRC’s Electronic 15:27 Dec 03, 2010 Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 29th day of November, 2010.
