The report discusses the development of emission factors for CO2, CO, CH4, NOx, and N2O for about 80 globally significant combustion sources in seven source categories: utility, industrial, fuel production, transportation, residential, commercial, and kilns/ovens/dryers. Because of the lack of adequate international data, the emission factors for most sources are based on U.S. performance, cost, and emissions data. Data on CO2, CO, and NOx were available for over 90% of the sources studied: on CH4, for about 80%; and on N2O, for only about 10%. Emission factor quality ratings were developed to indicate the overall adequacy of the supporting data. Evaluation of the emission factors for the seven source categories (taking the five gases as an aggregate for each category) showed that the kilns/ovens/dryers category had the lowest overall quality rating.
