For this request, facilities must report their emissions using the DEQ 2020 Air Toxics Emissions Inventory (ATEI) reporting form. To complete the ATEI reporting form, first assemble the items listed above in 'What to Report', then carefully read the ATEI Form Instructions tab on the reporting form. Instructions are also embedded in the form worksheets as comments. Worksheets are color-coded by emissions estimation method. Salmon orange indicates Activity and Emission Factor-derived emission estimation methods; and sage green indicates Material Balance-derived emission estimation methods. Additional information about the ATEI reporting form is available on the Air Toxics Reporting FAQ page.
DEQ has created emission factor search tools to streamline emission factor gathering for common types of equipment. Use of these tools is optional, and operators should determine if the compiled EFs best capture their facility operations, or if other equipment-specific or site-specific EFs are available. The tools are easy to use and designed to be copy/pasted directly into the 2020 ATEI reporting form. Follow the instructions on the first tab of each EF Search Tool for more information.
DEQ has created a Material Balance Quick Guide to help facilities locate SDS information and complete the ATEI reporting form with material specific information. The guide also describes how to account for control devices and material transfer or retention efficiencies.
Some information in the emissions inventory can be considered confidential business information if it meets the criteria outlined in Oregon Administrative Rule OAR 340-214-0130. Facilities wishing to prevent disclosure of certain aspects of their reported information may submit a disclosure exemption request and communicate directly with DEQ regarding submission procedures via email directly to a DEQ staff. Please review the Exempt from Disclosure question on the FAQ page for instruction.
Submit the reporting forms using the Air Quality Document Upload Application.
On July 1, 2020, facility representatives received an auto-generated PIN in an email
from DEQ to upload their form to the website. Facilities will receive a proof-of-submission
email confirmation when the upload is complete. A printable overview is
available in the 2020 ATEI Submission Procedure Quick Guide.
Facilities located in Lane County will use the same 2020 ATEI reporting form and DEQ tools, however these facilities should communicate directly with LRAPA staff with questions and regarding submission procedures. Visit the LRAPA ACDP Forms page for more information.
