Please take note of the following corrections to the equations on page 29 of the Environmental Code of Practice for Base Metals Smelters and Refineries, CEPA, 1999, first edition (EPS 1/MM/11 E). The changes have been made to the on-line version.

Equation 1 should read

pKa = 0.0901821 + 2729.92 / T

T = temperature in K (= T in °C + 273.15)

Equation 2 should read

f = 1 / [ 10(pKa - pH) + 1]

f = fraction of total ammonia that is un-ionized
pKa = dissociation constant from equation 1
