The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) established national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for criteria pollutants under section 110 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). To support the development and implementation of the NAAQS and associated policies, EPA must develop and maintain data on emission sources and potential control measures. These databases assist EPA in analyzing the effects of different standards and/or control strategies. This report documents development of control measures for inclusion in a comprehensive control measure data base to support EPA analyses of policies and regulations. This data base is called ControlNET - the control measure data base for the National Emission Trends (NET) inventory. ControlNET will cover all criteria pollutants: oxides of nitrogen (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), primary PM10, primary PM2.5, and ammonia (NH3). The purpose of the ControlNET is to provide the data necessary for quick and comprehensive regulatory impact analyses. A memorandum documenting the ControlNET interface is provided separately. This report addresses the control measure research and evaluations conducted to provide the parameters necessary (control measure efficiency and cost) to model the impact of control measures using data from the NET inventory.
