2020 Air Toxics Emissions Reporting Overview
In April 2021, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality formally notified all Air Quality-permitted sources holding a Title V or ACDP Standard or Simple permit of the requirement to report a 2020 Air Toxics Emissions Inventory by Sept. 1, 2021. All submissions were received and have been reviewed.
Individual, facility-wide emissions reports are now available through the DEQ Air Quality Permit Data Search page. The available Air Toxics Emissions reports have been reviewed by DEQ and, in many cases, facilities were contacted to clarify content or provide more information. If, upon further assessment, DEQ requires additional revisions from a facility, an updated report may be re-posted.
The available reports provide a snapshot of estimated facility emissions for the reporting year 2020. Emissions from routine processes are combined with those resulting from material usage to estimate facility-wide emissions. The wide variation in emissions across all facilities reflects the differences in size and complexity of sources, equipment and fuel type, control device usage and efficiency, as well as available supporting data.
Note that this periodic statewide Air Toxics Emissions Inventory is a separate reporting requirement from an Emissions Inventory submitted as part of a Cleaner Air Oregon risk assessment process.
Visit the 'For Facilities' section of the Cleaner Air Oregon website for more information about conducting a risk assessment.
