Future emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and costs of their control can be estimated by applying growth factors, emission constraints, control cost functions, and capacity retirement rates to the base line estimates of VOC emissions and industrial VOC source capacity in 1980. A personal computer model has been developed by the U.S. EPA to automate the forecasting procedure. The report provides guidelines for installing and operating the volatile organic compound model (VOCM) on an IBM-PC or IBM-PC compatible computer. The report describes how a VOCM user can create his own data files or use those supplied with VOCM for preparing forecasts..Software Description: The software was programmed using the PC-PASQUAL Language for implementation on the IBM-PC, XT, AT computers using the DOS 3.1 operating system and 320 K bytes memory.
