Global Atmospheric Emissions of PAH Compounds
The emission inventory (PKU-PAH) was built upon a global high-resolution combustion inventory (PKU-FUEL), historical energy statistical data, and a spatiotemporally informed emission factor (EF) database. Sixty-nine sources are considered in the emission inventory. Due to lack of EF measurement, some sources such as volcanic eruption and non-ferrous metal smelting rather than aluminum production were not included in the study. However, these sources are supposed to contribute little proportion to overall atmospheric PAH emissions.
