- Emissions inventory: An Emissions Inventory is a list of each toxic air contaminant regulated under the Cleaner Air Oregon rules that a facility emits in a given year. The Emissions Inventory includes the amount of each toxic air contaminant emitted from each individual emissions-producing activity.
- Emissions Inventory Supporting Documentation, Including Categorically Insignificant Activities: Categorically Insignificant Activities are activities that are likely to have insignificant emissions that are not part of a facility’s primary production process. Categorically Insignificant Activities are defined in OAR 340-200-0020.
