In the development of an emission inventory, emission factors are often either developed from the experimental measurement literature, or are borrowed directly from other bodies of work. SECTION 4 AMMONIA EMISSIONS IN INDUSTRY CATEGORIES INCLUDED IN THE NAPAP INVENTORY The NAPAP inventory included the following six industrial categories for which NH3 emission factors were developed: • Ammonium Nitrate Production • Ammonia Synthesis • Urea Manufacture • Ammonium Phosphate Manufacture • Petroleum Refineries Coke Manufacture A research and development study report, prepared for NAPAP inidentified and compared emissions factors developed.

The report, prepared for the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP), identifies the most appropriate ammonia (NH3) emission factors available for inclusion in the NAPAP Emissions Inventory. H3 emission factors developed for several new NAPAP source categories were compared with factors developed for other inventories.

lthough many of the NH3 emission factors presented in the report have low quality ratings, those factors.

The report documents the development and processing of temporal allocation factors for the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP) emissions inventory (Version 2).

The NAPAP emissions inventory represents the most comprehensive emissions data base available for the year Emissions data have been collected for each of the 48 contiguous United States and.

Emissions Data System (NEDS). NEDS calculates emissions by using emission factors already in the system for an SCC. Where no emission factors have ever been reported, the sec's were flagged for emission factor development as a high priority for this work assignment.

Results At the completion of the Phase II effort, 99 percent () of the. In the development of an emission inven- tory, emission factors are often either de- veloped for the experimental measurement literature or are borrowed directly from other bodies of work.

The primary source for the emission factors reviewed by this project was the body of recent emission inventory literature. This report compiles recent literature on ammonia (NH') emission factors for application in the United States.

ost of the recent research supports acid deposition studies in the European community (specifically, the Netherlands, Great Britain, and Scandinavia) but some research has been conducted in Australia.

A list of all SCCs and emission factors published in the NEDS document, as well as the emission factor estimates developed during Phases I and II of the update, are included in this report In the current work by AEERL, the primary objective was to provide VOC emission factor estimates for all SCCs that had no current listing of VOC emission factors Also included in this work was the development of NOx and SOX emission factor.

Development and Selection of Ammonia Emission Factors,” hereafter referred to as the “ guidance,” contains the results of a literature review and compiled NH 3 emission factors (Battye et al., ).

The purpose of this new emissions guidance for “anthropogenic sources” is to update the. updated activity data, emission factors, temporal profiles, and inventories of additional source categories.

The most important source categories were estimated to be livestock and poultry, fertilizers, and biogenics. These three sources combined accounted for 87% of the annual ammonia emissions in the CENRAP region (see Figure 1).

The report gives results of analysis of industrial sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions from two data sources: the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP) inventory and the EPA TRENDS report. These analyses conclude that the two data sources estimate comparable emissions in the aggregate, but that estimates for specific categories and for processes within those categories vary.

The National Emissions Inventory (NEI) is a comprehensive and detailed estimate of air emissions of criteria pollutants, criteria precursors, and hazardous air pollutants from air emissions sources. The NEI is released every three years based primarily upon data provided by State, Local, and Tribal air agencies for sources in their.

Nitrogen input from agricultural ammonia emissions into the environment causes numerous environmental and health problems. The purpose of this study is to present and evaluate an improved ammonia emission inventory based on a dynamical temporal parameterization suitable to compare and assess ammonia abatement by: Sources reporting emissions from novel management systems are excluded, as are sources in which insufficient data was presented to calculate EFs.

EPA’s Clearinghouse for Inventories & Emission Factors contains information on emissions inventories, emissions factors and tools used for emissions inventories to. Rebolledo et al. used an emission factor of kg(NH 3)head −1 a −1 for hogs, while the MASAGE_NH3 emission factor derived from GAINS is kg(NH 3)head −1 a −1.

There is a need to develop an inventory of actual measured ammonia emissions from long-term cropping system (including grasslands), zero-N unfertilized land (in last 10 to 20 years) and selected “natural” systems.

This will be important to establishing some baseline natural emissions estimates. Emission factors for ammonia inventories Even though there is a wide range in the estimated out- put of NH3 (Sutton et al., ), it is accepted that agriculture is the major known source of NH3 in the atmosphere, contributing approximately 90% of the UK total national emission (Eggleston, ; Sutton et Cited by: Clearinghouse for Inventories and Emissions Factors (CHIEF) Listserv Information The Emission Inventory and Analysis Group (EIAG) and the Measurement Policy Group (MPG) maintain the CHIEF Listserv.
