EPA has developed a Protocol for Generating Unit-Specific Emission Estimates for Equipment Leaks of VOC and VHAP. The protocol provides several methods for estimating emissions from equipment leaks. These methods range from the application of average emission factors for the equipment component inventory to the use of bagging data for generating unit-specific leak rate.

(15 pounds [lb]) of volatile organic compounds (VOC's) per day. (3) An owner or operator of a facility whose emissions are below the applicability threshold in paragraph (a)(2) of this section shall comply with the certification, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements of paragraph (g)(1) of this section. This guidelines document represents a revision to the District’s “Guidelines for Fugitive Emission Calculations – Petroleum Industry”, dated June to reflect the latest amendments to Rule This guidelines document provides calculation methods for estimating fugitive emissions (component leaks) from the petroleum. equations for its equipment leak fugitive components, those equations may be used to determine emissions only if the equations, sampling procedures, and all related procedures and data comply with EPA Reference Method 21 and the guidance in Protocol for Equipment Leak Emission Estimates. Diffuse VOC emission estimation methods, reduction measures, licensing and enforcement practice,9 (TXLSPHQW VWRUDJHWDQNV ORDGLQJ XQORDGLQJDQGXWLOLWLHV The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Protocol for Equipment Leak Emission Estimates [EPA’95]. According to this protocol, different approaches can be used to estimate.
Because material in equipment within a process unit is often a mixture of several chemicals, equipment leak emission estimates for specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and/or pollutants under Section (r) of the Clean Air Act, as amended can be obtained by multiplying the TOC emissions from a particular equipment times the ratio of the concentration of the . The Landfill Gas Emissions Model (LandGEM) is an automated estimation tool with a Microsoft Excel interface that can be used to estimate emissions rates for total landfill gas, methane, carbon dioxide, nonmethane organic compounds, and individual air pollutants from municipal solid waste landfills.

The steps involved in generating a unit-specific emissions estimate, using correlations developed specifically for that unit, are: 1. gathering of mass emission data and calculation of leak rate 2. development of leak rate/screening value corre- lations 3. statistical consideration of leak rate/screening value correlations 4. application of leak rate/screening value correlation to the empirical screening data 5. prediction of emissions.
