To enhance the accuracy of the emission inventory for the Regional Air Pollution Study (RAPS), a special emission factor development program was conducted in 1975 and 1976 on many of the large emission sources. Source testing of typical sources was carried out using standard EPA methods. Data for the criteria pollutants -- SO2, N0x, HC, CO, and particulate matter -- were obtained, as well as for H2SO4 mist and particle size distribution. Results indicate good agreement between measured and calculated SO2 values. Agreement of NOx and particulate values between actual tests and results calculated using standard emission factors is variable. Actual values tend to be lower than calculated values, at least for large combustion sources. In all cases, however, the specific plant emission factors measured in the RAPS program are being used in the RAPS emission inventory, since this was the prime purpose of the source testing program.
