SIC Codesic_codenumberStandard Industrial Classification Code describing the general type of activity at the facility. SIC code lookup is available at https://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/sicsearch.html
VOC (tons)vocnumberVolatile organic compounds (VOC) means any compound of carbon, excluding carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, carbonic acid, metallic carbides or carbonates and ammonium carbonate, which participates in atmospheric photochemical reactions, except those designated by EPA as having negligible photochemical reactivity. Annual volatile organic compound emissions at the facility measured in tons.
NOx (tons)noxnumberNitrogen oxides (NOx) is the term used to describe the sum of nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and other oxides of nitrogen. Most airborne NOX comes from combustion-related emissions sources of human origin, primarily fossil fuel combustion in electric utilities, high-temperature operations at other industrial sources, and operation of motor vehicles. Annual nitrogen oxide emissions at the facility measured in tons.
CO (tons)conumberCarbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that forms when carbon in fuel is not burned completely. Carbon monoxide is a component of exhaust from motor vehicles and engines. Carbon monoxide emissions increase when conditions are poor for combustion; thus, the highest carbon monoxide levels tend to occur when the weather is very cold or at high elevations where there is less oxygen in the air to burn the fuel. Annual carbon monoxide emissions at the facility measured in tons.
CO2 (tons)co2numberCarbon dioxide is a naturally occurring gas, and also a by-product of burning fossil fuels and biomass, as well as land-use changes and other industrial processes. It is the principal human caused greenhouse gas that affects the Earth's radiative balance. Annual carbon dioxide emissions at the facility measured in tons.
Particulates (tons)particulatesnumberParticulates are tiny particles or liquid droplets suspended in the air that can contain a variety of chemical components. Larger particles are visible as smoke or dust and settle out relatively rapidly. The tiniest particles can be suspended in the air for long periods of time and are the most harmful to human health because they can penetrate deep into the lungs. Some particles are directly emitted into the air. They come from a variety of sources such as cars, trucks, buses, factories, construction sites, tilled fields, unpaved roads, stone crushing, and wood burning. Other particles are formed in the atmosphere by chemical reactions. Annual particulate matter (total) emissions at the facility measured in tons.
PM10 (tons)pm10numberParticles that are less than 10 microns in diameter. Most particulate matter is PM10. Annual particulate matter (less than 10 microns in diameter) emissions at the facility measured in tons.
PM2.5 (tons)pm2_5numberParticles that are less than 2.5 microns in diameter. These particles are often referred to as "PM fine." PM fine particles are so small that they are not typically visible to the naked eye. In the atmosphere, however, they are significant contributors to haze. Smaller particles are generally more harmful to human health because they can penetrate more deeply into the lungs than larger particles. Annual particulate matter (less than 2.5 microns in diameter) emissions at the facility measured in tons.
HAPS (tons)hapsnumberHazardous air pollutants, also known as toxic air pollutants or air toxics, are those pollutants that are known or suspected to cause cancer or other serious health effects, such as reproductive effects or birth defects, or adverse environmental effects. EPA is working with state, local, and tribal governments to reduce air emissions of 187 toxic air pollutants to the environment. Examples of toxic air pollutants include benzene, which is found in gasoline; perchloroethylene, which is emitted from some dry cleaning facilities; and methylene chloride, which is used as a solvent and paint stripper by a number of industries. Examples of other listed air toxics include dioxin, asbestos, toluene, and metals such as cadmium, mercury, chromium, and lead compounds. Annual hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) emissions at the facility measured in tons.
SO2 (tons)so2numberSulfur dioxide isone of a group of highly reactive gasses known as “oxides of sulfur.” The largest sources of SO2 emissions are from fossil fuel combustion at power plants (73%) and other industrial facilities (20%). Smaller sources of SO2 emissions include industrial processes such as extracting metal from ore, and the burning of high sulfur containing fuels by locomotives, large ships, and non-road equipment. SO2 is linked with a number of adverse effects on the respiratory system. Annual sulfur dioxide emissions at the facility measured in tons.
