An emission inventory is an accounting of all sources of air pollution within a defined geographic area. A comprehensive emission inventory is an essential air quality management tool. This report describes the results of the 1995 emission inventory update for the province of British Columbia. The common contaminants carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, total reduced sulphur, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter (with PM10 and PM2.5 breakdowns) are included in this inventory along with the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. For the common contaminants summaries by Ministry Waste Management Region source category, and individual source are listed in the body of this report. A breakdown of greenhouse gas emissions that is more detailed than previous estimates provided by Environment Canada is also provided in this report.
