Area and point source emissions of sulfur compounds (sulfur dioxide and sulfur trioxide), particulates, carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, and hydrocarbons and their derivatives were calculated within an emission inventory for Louisiana. Procedures involved in gathering data on emissions and fuel consumption, determination of the grid systems, survey methodology, data analysis, and actual calculations of emissions are reviewed. The point sources included chemical processing, coal cleaning, detergent and soap manufacturing, ink manufacturing, paint and varnish production, fertilizer plants, synthetic fiber and rubber production, food and feed operations, rendering, primary and secondary metallurgical processes, mineral processing, petroleum refining, pulp and paper manufacture, dry cleaning, surface coating operations, gasoline marketing, steam-electric power plants, incinerators, and open burning dumps. Area source emissions were calculated from combustion and consumption data on coal, fuel oil, natural gas, residual oil, and distillate oil with vessels, railroads, diesel motor vehicles, gasoline motor vehicles, airport operations, solid waste disposal, and process losses as major area sources. Sample inventory forms, data tabulations, and area maps are included.
