Description: Standard procedures for estimating capital and operating costs for the Environmental Control Technology Project are presented in this report. Two different procedures were used for estimating capital costs: (1) general order-of-magnitude estimates for those facilities which are invariant among environmental control technologies, and (2) detailed estimating procedures for those facilities and control systems expected to vary among comparisons of environmental control methods. The general approaches and procedures of NUS-531 (Guide for Economic Evaluation of Nuclear Reactor Plant Designs, NUS Corporation, Rockville, MD, January 1969) were used for detailed capital cost estimates. Detailed procedures are presented for operating cost estimates. These include estimating worksheets and specific procedures for each of the components of the operating costs. These also were based on the approach of NUS-531.
