2006, OMNI

MARAMA hired OMNI to re-evaluate previous Residential Wood Combustion survey data, develop a new emissions inventory, and conduct emissions benefit and cost effectiveness analyses for Wood Combustion controls in the MANE-VU region. Estimates of emission from residential wood combustion are difficult, and some uncertainty always remains. This report used different methods to estimate the amount of wood burned then a previous report prepared by E. H. Pechan and Associates for MARAMA. The MANE-VU states believe this estimate improved on the previous one, though both have certain advantages.
