Reported and Assumed Emissions Inventories

These Excel spreadsheets include all emissions reported for the specified calendar year (such as 2014) as well as assumed (most recent previously reported) emissions for all permitted facilities that operated in the selected calendar year. For example, if a facility reported emissions in 2008 and the next collection is 2014, the 2008 emissions will be included in these spreadsheets until the 2014 emissions have been reviewed. These data are reviewed by DAQ staff and are posted in January, 13 months after the end of a specific calendar year. Information about the spreadsheet data is included on the Explanation tab or you can contact Tammy Manning by phone at 919-707-8717 or by email at Tammy.Manning@ncdenr.gov.
