Emissions Quantification for Industrial Processes

Emissions inventory is the most commonly required report for industrial operations to comply with air quality regulations. From refineries to chemical plants, emissions generated from similar equipment (e.g., storage tanks) may be quantified by totally different approaches. This course will provide an overview of the air quality regulations governing the use of emissions inventory. The main focus of the course will review the quantification methodologies for common industrial sources of criteria air pollutants (CAP), hazardous air pollutants (HAP), and greenhouse gases (GHG). The instructor will complete the course with tips to better manage emissions reporting and recordkeeping for compliance demonstration. As an outcome to the course, attendees will gain the basic knowledge to apply the most scientific-sound approach to calculate/estimate emissions from common industrial processes. The intended audience consists of:

  • Practicing analysts, who wish to gain an overall understanding of emission quantification technologies
  • Reviewers of emissions inventories, who wish to be able to critically review and/or certify results
  • Environmental supervisors who need to manage emissions reporting and recordkeeping requirements
  • CEUs:
