Nationwide emission estimates for the year 1968 are presented. Carbon monoxide, particulates, sulfur oxides, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides are indicated from transportation sources, industrial processes, solid waste disposal, and fuel combustion in stationary sources. Projections of motor vehicle emissions to the year 1990 are included for HO, CO, and NOX. Presented also are the methodology and basic data used to make the emission estimates, such as fuel usage, vehicle miles of travel, and methods of solid waste disposal. Separate travel data were developed for urban and rural driving for automobiles and light- and heavy-duty trucks. Diesel fuel is indicated as well as gasoline. Aircraft, railroads, and ships are mentioned, including the non-highway consumption of motor fuels. Fuel consumption by stationary sources comprises coal, fuel oil, natural gas, and wood. Miscellaneous sources include forest fires, structural fires, coal refuse burning, organic solvent evaporation, gasoline marketing, and agricultural burning.
