Ernest is now ready use the Link step
to associate the paint to the equipment, indicate that the type
of emissions source is a spray booth, and indicate that the paint
is used by the gallon.
Here's how EMFACT computes air emissions:
(Usage Quantity x Pollutant%) x (100 - Control
Efficiency%) = Air Emissions
Pollutant% = Pollutant Content/Density
Ernest enters 0% for VOC Control Efficiency because
there are no controls. Everything that is used is emitted.
When listing Air Factors, Ernest enters VOC for pollutants. He
enters 2.79 for the pollutant content, which
he obtained by using the formula: Density x VOC%
(6.18 x 45.14% = 2.79).
