The development of a complete emission inventory is an important step in an air quality management process. Emission inventories are used to help determine:
The emission estimation procedure largely depends on the:
Ideally, site specific, continuous monitoring data should be used in emission estimation efforts. If unavailable, EHRCON makes use of three principle methods for estimating emissions:
