Air Emissions Inventories

Air Pollutant Emissions Trends Data

Current emissions trends data and the documentation of estimation methods are available or linked from here. The latest version of the 1970 - 2016 data shows trends for Tier 1 categories. One of the distinct and natural occurrences in inventory development is the evolution and improvement of emission estimate methods over time. In some cases, an improved estimation method for a source category may be applied 'backwards' to previous year estimates for that same category.
