The Annual Emission Report is filed each year by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in compliance with the Knox County Department of Air Quality Management Operating Permit and the EPA Federal Operating Permit. Running totals of emissions released and resources used are kept on a monthly basis from all of the university's stationary sources (waste heat boiler system, steam plant, natural gas turbine, etc.). The 'other' category contains the summation of other categories included in UT's report. These include: VOC (6.22 tons), HCl (0.00 tons), and HF (0.00 tons). These results are from the 2016 Annual Emission Report.
