Market Trading Forum: NOx and PM

The purpose of this project is to complete a report on stationary sources of NOx and PM. The report is required as part of the Section 309 SIPs due by December 31, 2003. For the part of the regional haze rule pertaining to this report, click DOC or PDF

The report is a starting point for addressing the role of stationary source PM and NOx emissions over the next few years. All states must implement BART for NOx and PM or an alternative program with superior benefits.

The report will be comprised of four major sections: a summary of NOx and PM emissions and ambient monitoring data, a conceptual model of haze in the West and the role of stationary source NOx and PM emissions based on the state of the science, results from NOx and PM sensitivity runs using the WRAP regional scale air quality model, and a summary of NOx and PM emission control technologies, effectiveness, costs, and secondary impacts.

Stationary Source NOx and PM Emissions in the WRAP Region: An Initial Assessment of Emissions, Controls, and Air Quality Impacts
This report is required as part of the Section 309 SIPs, but contains information relevant to all WRAP states and is designed to be a starting point for assessing stationary source NOx and PM emissions as required of all SIPs and SIP revisions due in the 2005-08 timeframe. (10/01/03)

Please note that the information for Utah contains some errors. The emissions are correct, but the company names have been scrambled. Utah is working with the Emissions Forum to solve this problem.
