The report describes the first 2 years of a study covering the combustion-related emissions phase of a 3-year program entitled, 'Analysis of NOx Control in Stationary Sources.' The study is aimed at assisting in the establishment of priorities for detailed studies of techniques for the control of combustion-related emissions from stationary sources. The inventory includes emissions of oxides of nitrogen, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter, not only from stationary sources primarily involving combustion, but also from other stationary sources where combustion plays a secondary role. During the first year of the study, emissions were established for 1975 and 1980 from boilers, internal combustion engines, chemical manufacturing, and petroleum refining. During the second year, emissions were established for 1976 and 1981 for primary metals and hydrocarbon evaporation, as well as for the four industries studied the first year. The third year will cover mineral products, secondary metals, and wood products. The report identifies approximately 68% of particulate matter and between 93% and 97% of NOx, hydrocarbon, and carbon monoxide emissions from stationary sources.
