Sleva, S., et al., AND S. Kersteter. IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF FIVE NON- TRADITIONAL SOURCE CATEGORIES: CATASTROPHIC/ACCIDENTAL RELEASES, VEHICLE REPAIR FACILITIES, RECYCLING, PESTICIDE APPLICATION, AND AGRICULTURAL OPERATIONS. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/R-93/045 (NTIS PB93-166973), 1993.

Impact/Purpose:

Information.

Description:

The report gives results of work that is part of EPA's program to identify and characterize emissions sources not currently accounted for by either the existing Aerometric Information Retrieval System (AIRS) or State Implementation Plan (SIP) area source methodologies and to develop appropriate emissions estimation methodologies and emission factors for a group of these source categories. Based on the results of the identification and characterization portions of this research, five source categories were selected for methodology and emission factor development; catastrophic/accidental releases, vehicle repair facilities, recycling, pesticide application, and agricultural operations. The report gives emissions estimation methodologies and emission factor data for these source categories. The discussions of each category include general background information, emissions generation activities, pollutants emitted, sources of activity and pollutant data, emissions estimation methodologies, issues to be considered, and recommendations. The information used in these discussions was derived from various sources including available literature, industrial and trade association publications and contracts, experts on the category and activity, and knowledgeable federal and state personnel.
