msei -- NOVEMBER 9, 2017 PUBLIC WORKSHOP ON UPDATES TO CARB EMFAC2017 MODEL Posted: 18 Oct 2017 10:33:12
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a workshop on Thursday, November 9, 2017 to discuss updates to on-road component of the mobile source emissions inventory. At the workshop, staff will summarize the proposed updates to the EMFAC2017 model and present draft default results from these updates. This will be the second and final public workshop to discuss the development of EMFAC2017 before its public release in December 2017. The workshop will be held at the following date, time and location: Date: Thursday, November 9, 2017 Time: 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Location: Cal/EPA Headquarter Building Byron Sher Auditorium 1001 I Street Sacramento, CA 95814 -Webcast and Workshop Materials- A live video/audio webcast will be available for those unable to attend in person. The webcast can be accessed at: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/broadcast/ Information on submitting questions or comments will be provided during the webcast for remote participants. The workshop materials will be posted in advance of the workshop at http://www.arb.ca.gov/msei/msei.htm -Workshop Information and Background- The past several decades have seen dramatic improvements in air quality as a result of regulations that 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. CARB is expanding mobile source analysis tools to support air quality planning focused on achieving these goals. The EMFAC model is the primary tool that the CARB uses to assess emissions from on-road vehicles including cars, trucks, and buses. This will be the second and last public workshop to discuss the development of latest version of EMFAC. The staff provided a description of the major updates to the model during the first workshop in June. During this final workshop, staff will revisit major updates and provide resulting emissions impact from these updates comparing them to EMFAC2014. -Special Accommodations or Language Assistance- If you require special accommodations or need this document in an alternative format (i.e., Braille, large print) or another language, please contact Dr. Chandan Misra at (916) 323-1503, or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, but no later than 10 business days before the scheduled workshop.
