Facility Search Tool
The Facility Search Engine is a tool that can be used to query stationary point criteria pollutant and air toxics emissions in a given inventory reporting year, as well as information on facility risk. The tool contains historical and current criteria and toxics emissions data from 1987 and 1996, respectively, to 2018.
Stationary point sources are sources that can be identified by locations and are often permitted by local Air Quality Management Districts and Air Pollution Control Districts. Examples of stationary sources include facility point sources, such as power plants and oil refineries.
The tool pulls data from CEIDARS(California Emissions Inventory Data Analysis and Reporting System), which is a database management system developed to track statewide criteria pollutant and air toxic emissions.
The emissions inventory development is an ongoing process, and, as new information becomes available, methodologies and models are improved. The Facility Search Engine reflects a snapshot of the CEIDARS inventory at specific date and time.
Below is a summary of the 2018 stationary point criteria pollutant and air toxics emissions:
- Criteria and Air Toxics Reporting: 2018 Data Summary
Find criteria and toxics pollutant emissions data for facilities in California.
- After selecting on "Facility Search" below, choose a year that you are interested in.
- Limit your search results by the name of the facility (try typing only 1 word) or air district.
- Determine if you are more interested in criteria pollutant data, toxic emissions and risk data, or a particular pollutant using the radial button at the bottom of the screen. If you choose "Show Facilities that emit..", use the pull-down to pick a pollutant.
- Submit your request (results will appear more quickly if you narrow your search).
- Sort the data if necessary using the blue arrows.
- Download the facility list.
- Select the name of the facility to get information about emissions and risk data.
