Sectoral emission inventory of Punjab shows that the major portion of total air pollutant emissions come from the transport sector which holds 43% share, followed by 25% from industrial sector and 20% from agriculture.

A similar emission inventory was conducted by SAFAR for Delhi-NCR in 2010, too, and a comparison with that shows emissions from the residential sector has fallen by 64 per cent due to LPG access even in slums.
To determine more targeted energy saving and emission reduction strategies, the approach to determine a reasonable and accurate emission inventory of gasoline vehicles becomes one of the most important and challenging tasks.

Secondly, in chapter 6, an anthropogenic emission inventory of primary air pollutants in China is built, and a detailed method of emission estimation is introduced, concerning the estimation of SO2, NOx, PM (in several size classes), black carbon (BC), organic carbon (OC), non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOC) and ammonia.
Quantitative methods for dealing with uncertainty in emission estimates involve the characterization of uncertainty in emission factors and/or activity data, and propagation of uncertainty to a total emission inventory. Although numerous probabilistic techniques have been applied for this purpose, the well-known Monte Carlo approach has multiple advantages and is the most often used for this purpose (e.g., Frey, Zheng 2002a, 2002b; Abdel-Aziz, Frey 2003).
In a report released on Monday, the oil and gas industry groups suggest the figures for methane emissions contained in the EPA's 2010 emission inventory for natural gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing are inaccurate and inflated.
The Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model was applied to an emission inventory to estimate the baseline concentrations and the marginal concentration change associated with hypothetical control strategies for multiple sectors in the YRD.
The Emission Inventory includes direct GHGs as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), F gases with GHG precursors as nitrous oxides (NOx), non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
