Title: EPA Clearinghouse for Inventories and Emission Factors (CHIEF)
Description:
Abstract:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clearinghouse for Inventories and Emission Factors (CHIEF) provides a mechanism of exchanging information on air pollution control matters between federal, state, and local agencies, private citizens, universities, contractors and foreign governments. The CHIEF maintains air pollution emission factors and criteria for six major pollutants (particulates (PM-10), SO2, CO, NOx, VOC, and lead) and toxic substances from stationary and mobile sources. A listserver ("http://www.epa.gov/ttn/chief/listserv.html"), and a FAX service (FAX CHIEF The Air CHIEF CD-ROM version 8.0 contains text files, Air CHIEF files, FIRE (Factor Information retrieval System) files, and EPA document files. The Air CHIEF database consists of the following: AP-42, A Compilation of Air Pollutant Emission Factors (5th edition, Supplements A-F). These consist of emission factors and activities that produce criteria and toxic pollutant emissions for stationary point and area sources. Emissions estimates of 25 toxic pollutants. NAICS and SIC classification codes. Finalized 1996 National Toxics Inventory Documentation for Area and Mobile Sources Emission Inventory Guidance for the Implementation of Ozone and PM NAAQS and Regional Haze Regulations Handbook for Criteria Pollutants Emission Inventory Development National Air Pollutant Emission Trends Report 1900-1998 National Air Pollutant Emission Trends Procedures SPECIATE - a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) and Particulate Matter (PM) Speciation dataset which contains speciation profiles for various sources of VOC and PM emissions. BEIS - The Personal Computer version of the Biogenic Emissions Inventory System (BEIS 2.3) allows users to estimate hourly emissions of biogenic volatile organic compound and soil nitrogen oxide emissions for any county in the contiguous United States. CHEM9 - CHEM9 is a compound properties processor that is based upon an EPA compound database of over 1000 compounds. WATER8 - WATER8 is an analytical model for estimating compound-specific air emissions from wastewater collection & treatment systems. CHEMDAT8 - CHEMDAT8 is a Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet that includes analytical models for estimating VOC emissions from treatment, storage and disposal facility (TSDF) processes. Landfill Model PM CALC - EPA has replaced the PM-10 Calculator program with new software that will estimate filterable PM2.5 emissions. FIRE - Factor and Information REtrieval directory and software for EPA's recommended criteria and toxic air emission estimation factors. EPA Documents Files - a directory of EPA documents.
