The EPA Administrator signed a regulation setting standards for hydrocarbons (HC) at 1.3 g/BHP-hr and carbon monoxide (CO) at 15.5 g/BHP-hr for 1984 and later model year heavy duty vehicles (HDV). The reduction in the total emission levels due to the introduction of these standards was estimated on a national level by combining the emission inventories of several regions. These regions represent most of the major metropolitan areas in the U.S. that have violations of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone and CO. This combined inventory may account for a large proportion of the total U.S. population subjected to the high pollutant levels, but it may not be the appropriate inventory for demonstrating the maximum emission reduction achievable through the introduction of the new standards. The inventory of an area characterized by a high traffic density with a large number of HDV should be examined to approximate the maximum reduction in total emissions that can be attributed to the new HDV standards. In an effort to approximate this maximum reduction, the HC and CO inventories for the New York City (NYC) area are examined in this report.
