Any assessment of control strategies or impacts of potentially hazardous airborne pollutants must begin with the characterization of source emissions. This paper describes a new computer–based model developed for the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to quantify the emissions of chemical species in all gaseous, liquid and solid streams entering and leaving a plant. User–specified parameters allow the model to be tailored to a variety of power plant configurations and site–specific conditions. A unique feature of the model is that all parameters and input data may be characterized probabilistically so that uncertainties can be analyzed rigorously.
