Syracuse, NY 13206
Application ID: 7-3126-00225/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Articles 1, 3, 17, 19, 27 & 37 Radiation Control
Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Dewitt, Onondaga County
Project Description:

Operation of a nuclear medicine pharmacy for the preparation of reinfusion devices (including syringes) for human medical diagnostic and/or therapeutic services. The devices consist of various radioisotopes which are dispensed to client sites (including hospitals and other medical offices) for use in the therapeutic treatment or diagnosis of medical conditions. Half-lives of the radioisotopes range from 6.01 hours to 3.26 days. All radioactive material is then decayed through a minimum of ten half-lives prior to certification as non-radioactive. The project would emit iodine-131 and xenon-133 to the air from a radiopharmacy fume hood exhaust stack. The syringes would be handled as Regulated Medical Waste after use and collected and returned to the PharmaLogic facility for ultimate collection and disposal by a permitted hauler and disposal facility. The facility has operated at the existing location at a lower level of operation and under other permits from other agencies for about a year. This proposal adds the loading of the syringes to the operation and the air emissions through the fume hood exhaust stack. The facility encompasses approximately 2,080 square feet of leased space located in an existing industrial park (address above) on the east side of Ridings Rd., south of Court Street in the Town of DeWitt, Onondaga County.
