Emissions Inventories

Emissions inventories are essential for air quality planning and management. An emissions inventory is a detailed list of emission estimates for air pollution sources associated with specific activities for a specific time period. The Air District compiles regional and county inventories that estimate Bay Area emissions of criteria air pollutantsgreenhouse gases, and toxic air contaminants for past, present, and future years.  The Air District also periodically conducts special studies to improve emission estimates or to assess emission levels for certain source areas.
