Impact/Purpose:

This presentation describes the SPECIATE 4.4 database, provides specific recommendations for its use, and makes recommendations for future improvements. The International Emissions Inventory Conference audience consists of developers of emissions inventories concerned with improved data sources and accuracy of these inventories. The emissions profiles in SPECIATE allow these end users to provide more accurate information to decision makers.

Description:

EPA released SPECIATE 4.4 in early 2014 and, in total, the SPECIATE 4.4 database includes 5,728 PM, VOC, total organic gases (TOG), and Other Gases profiles.
