Gaseous effluent that is discharged through the stack of CORAL reprocessing facility is continuously monitored and the activity release estimated to comply with the regulatory requirements. Krypton-85, Iodine-131 and particulates are monitored and the activity release quantified in this facility. Release of Tritium in the gaseous effluent also needs to be monitored considering it's long half-life and the consequent environmental impact. Moreover, it has also become a regulatory requirement to monitor and quantify Tritium discharge from a reprocessing facility. In view of this, a prototype setup, adopting bubbler method, has been designed, installed and commissioned at CORAL to monitor and quantify the Tritium release during the recently concluded campaign. It was observed that Tritium was released during the chopping and dissolution processes, in measurable quantities.
