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 methods and calculations used to compile the 2000 emission inventory for the Province of British Columbia. Inventory summaries are presented in the Appendices. The criteria air contaminants carbon monoxide, nitrogenoxides, sulphur oxides, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter (with PM10and PM2.5 breakdowns) are included in this inventory.
