Emissions Assessment
Emissions inventories are a critical component of air quality management and planning, and are used to support a wide variety of analyses, including air quality modeling simulations, trends reports, and control measure assessments.

STI has extensive experience developing emissions inventories for criteria pollutants, air toxics, and greenhouse gases, including assessments of stationary sources, on-road and non-road mobile sources, and natural sources (e.g., biogenic emissions and wildfires). Our scientists and engineers are skilled users of the full range of emissions-related software, and we apply the best science and approved protocols to develop high-quality emissions inventories for our clients. In addition, we have developed and refined methods for evaluating and improving our clients’ existing emissions inventories. These methods include the use of surveys to collect emissions-related activity data for targeted sources and the comparison of emissions inventories to ambient monitoring data (known as “emissions reconciliation”).
