The report gives results of an inventory of gaseous, liquid, and solid effluents from stationary NOx sources, projected to the year 2000, and ranks them according to their potential for environmental hazard. It classifies sources according to their pollution formation characteristics, and gives results of a compilation of emission factors and regional and national fuel consumption data for specific equipment/fuel types. It gives results of an emission inventory for NOx, SOx, CO, HC, particulates, sulfates, POM, and liquid or solid effluents. It projects emissions to 1985 and to 2000 for five energy scenarios, depicting alternative uses of coal, nuclear power, and synthetic fuels. It ranks sources by nationwide emissions loading for 1974, 1985, and 2000. It describes a source analysis model used to estimate pollution hazard, considering ambient dispersion, population exposure, background concentrations, and health-based impact threshold limits. It applies the model to the emission inventory to produce source rankings based on both single-pollutant and total-multimedia impact factors.
