Emissions Accountant®

BASIC DESCRIPTION & APPLICATION

Emissions Accountant analytical software analyzes and tracks air emissions for one or more processes against several different metrics. It solves reporting headaches by tracking air emissions for fixed calendar or rolling twelve month periods and can report air emissions for a single process for HAP control efficiencies and other critical MON and MACT determinations.

Emissions Accountant streamlines emissions tracking by combining calculations from Emission Master factory production records for each process to calculate the cumulative emissions over specified periods of time. It tags compounds using conventional classifications (such as HAP, VOC and TVOS) but also allows the user to customize how data is to be reported such as for permit compliance.

This comprehensive, yet easy to use software is a major tool for factory reporting and emission management. Below are some of its key functions, most of which can be customized:

  • Yearly and Monthly Permit Tracking
  • Rolling 12 Month Emission Reporting
  • Tank Farm Emissions Tracking
  • Combustion Emissions Tracking
  • Inlet Process Stream Analysis
  • PTE (Potential To Emit) Analysis
  • HAP Operating Scenario Analysis
  • TRI Report Resources – Emissions By Type (process, storage tank, combustion, fugitive, insignificant sources), Control Device Removal and Inlet Stream Report.
  • Equipment Unit Hourly Permit Tracking
  • Equipment Unit Emissions Permit

RECENT UPGRADES

Emissions Accountant uses familiar directory organization so that records are always at the user’s finger tips, available for a specific process. It uses a collection of subgroups and processes similar to the standard Microsoft Windows file structure of directories, sub-directories and files. Each process group can represent a collection or process that might be run in the same facility, such as under the same operating permit or other attribute. 

Production Data, in batch or period groupings, can be imported from Excel, a CSV file or a simple TXT file.

Reports can be created to include all production records contained in process groups or subgroups, unlike earlier versions of Emissions Accountant, which reported all production records in the system.  The Illinois AER illustrates Emission Accountant’s versatility in which AER Reports required by the Illinois EPA can be generated on an annual basis and include state specific forms. See http://www.epa.state.il.us/air/aer/.

Similarly, a new Emissions Accountant report was developed that implements PTE analysis strategies from the EPA Memo “Clarification of Methodology for Calculating Potential to Emit (PTE) for Batch Chemical Production Operations“, August 29th, 1996. This PTE analysis presents a worst case air emissions scenario for a manufacturing facility based upon all possible processes and compounds that are emitted from each process.
