Inventory Collaborative 2016beta Emissions Modeling Platform
- March 1, 2019: 2016 base year data, software, and scripts
- Est. April 2019: 2023 and 2028 projection year data
A coordination workgroup, ten sector workgroups, and a modeling workgroup were staffed by state and regional air agency, and
EPA OAQPS employees. The work of the sector workgroups to build 2016 base year and future year inventories is documented in a series of sector-specific specification sheets below. These specification sheets detail the origin of the inventories and ancillary data used to simulate criteria pollutant, and in many cases hazardous air pollutant, emissions for the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
The summary stacked bar plots below compare U.S. total criteria pollutant emissions for the 2016beta platform back to 2011 and 2014 base and future year emissions.
Descriptions of the emissions platform cases shown in the plots below are as follows:
2011en, 2023en, 2028el = Final 2011, 2023, and 2028 cases from the 2011v6.3 platform 2014fd = NEI2014v2 and 2014 NATA 2016ff , 2023ff, 2023ff = 2016beta platform

Folders by inventory sectors with zip files of tabulated SMOKE report emissions report files. See the zip file tagged "annual_reports" in each sector directory.
Particular acknowledgement of the workgroup co-leads is due, as they worked to recruit, organize, and lead their workgroups through the Collaborative platform development and documentation process.
Refer to the Collaborative inventory workgroup wikis for complete lists of the workgroup co-leads and participants.
