The report summarizes the dialogue and interaction which took place during an EPA sponsored workshop addressing nitrous oxide (N20) emissions from fossil fuel combustion. Prior research had identified N20 as a trace gas potentially contributing to depletion of stratospheric ozone as well as being a contributor to global climate change through the greenhouse effect. Prior studies also suggested that fossil fuel combustion was a major anthropogenic source of N2O emissions. The workshop was organized to assess the current understanding of combustion generated N2O emission and to assist EPA in formulating combustion research activities. The four technical sessions addressed: (1) N2O measurement, (2) N2O formation/destruction mechanisms during combustion, (3) emission source prioritization, and (4) emission control approaches. It appears that the most significant N2O emitters are utility and industrial boilers firing coal and heavy fuel oil.
