SPARS Inventories
  • SPARS should be used to submit information for Emissions Inventory on:
    • Any Site Subject to Construction Permitting, but not Subject to Title V (Minor Source Emissions Inventories)
    • Major Source Emission Inventories
    • Modifications to a Current Inventory

2003 SPARSEnhancements

  • Ability to copy and use previous applications, as well as improved site management autofill
    • Title V Renewal Applications, includes last EIQ
    • Major Source Emission Inventories
    • Minor Source Emission Inventories
    • Autofill new applications from site management
slide9

2003 SPARSEnhancements

  • Ability to copy and use previous applications, as well as improved site management autofill
  • Expanded auto-calculate functions
    • All sources of Emission Factors EXCEPT Permit, CEM, Other
    • Expanded comment section for selected source of emission factor
  • Pollutants listed in SPARS and Printout by name
    • No longer using CAS numbers on printout
slide10

Copy and Reuse Data Function

  • Reuse an existing Title V Application for creating a Renewal Title V Application
    • Updates equipment from Administrators
    • Maintains all Potential data from original Title V
    • Copies in all Actual data from previous year’s EIQ
slide11

Copy and Reuse Data Function

  • Able to create new Emission Inventories using the previous year’s data as a template
    • Adds new equipment, maintains existing units, raw materials, operating schedule, emission factors, control values from previous year.
    • Sets the new inventory’s unit Throughput and Total Emissions to zero
slide12

New Feature Benefits

  • Once initial applications/inventories are completed, no need to re-enter data for points, units, control/monitoring equipment, emission factors, units of measure UNLESS they change between submittals.
  • Copying and Reusing previous applications and inventories will have significant benefits for industry, cutting application production time dramatically.
slide13

Expanded Auto-Calculate Tools

  • Auto calculation for all sources of Emission Factor EXCEPT Permit, CEM, Other
    • Use for AP42, Fire, Worksheet, Stack Test, SCC, MSDS, Mass Balance, Tanks
    • Calculated field IS changeable, make note on Calcs tab for the modified pollutant value
  • Standardized calculations for non-modified processes, those having no special characteristics
    • Potentials handled differently than Actual Emissions
slide16

Copy Function Example

  • Movie: Title V Emission Inventory
  • Uses previous inventory as a template for the new inventory
    • Update changes to facility in 2003
    • Copy data from 2002 to 2003
    • Enter throughputs for 2003, will autocalculate new emissions totals
124 facilities used spars for the 2003 emission inventory
124 Facilities Used SPARS for the2003 Emission Inventory
  • Increase of 66 Facilities, doubling the number of Facilities submitting on the SPARS software package over 2002
  • SPARS 2002 Fee Emissions : 44,452.33 tons
  • SPARS 2003 Fee Emissions : 163,719.90 tons
124 facilities used spars for the 2003 emission inventory18
124 Facilities Used SPARS for the2003 Emission Inventory
  • 119,267.57 ton increase reported on SPARS represents a268.30% increasein reported emissions over 2002 totals
  • Fee Emissions for 2003 : 231,876.65 tons
