msei -- June 1, 2017 PUBLIC WEBINAR WORKSHOP ON UPDATES TO ARB’S EMFAC2017 MODEL Posted: 15 May 2017 11:09:19
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) invites you to participate in a webinar on Thursday, June 1, 2017 to discuss updates to the on-road component of the mobile source emission inventory. At the webinar, staff will summarize updates that have been made to EMFAC and present updated methodologies from the upcoming EMFAC2017 model. This will be the first public workshop to discuss the development of the EMFAC2017 model. This meeting will be conducted through the GoToWebinar online webinar system and questions from participants will be taken using the webinar software. This event will also be recorded and made available on the ARB web site. Information on how to register for this workshop will be sent out on this listserv at least one week prior to the workshop date. Webinar Information and Background The past several decades have seen dramatic improvements in air quality as a result of regulations that have reduced emissions from stationary and mobile sources. However, substantial additional emissions reductions will be necessary to meet more stringent ozone air quality standards and California’s long-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. ARB is expanding its mobile source analysis tools to support air quality planning focused on achieving these goals. The EMFAC model is the primary tool ARB uses to assess emissions from on-road vehicles including cars, trucks, and buses. This public webinar workshop will discuss the development of the upcoming EMFAC2017 version of the model. At the webinar, staff will provide a description of the methodologies incorporated and updates made to the model. A subsequent workshop in the Fall will cover model estimates and explain differences between the new estimates and those from the prior version of the model, EMFAC2014.
