Minnesota Criteria Pollutant Emission Inventory -
Emission Inventory Summary Graphs


2005 Criteria Pollutant Emissions by Principal Source Categories

Mobile sources (onroad and nonroad combined) were responsible for approximately 56.3% of total emissions. Nonpoint and point sources contributed 33.8% and 9.9% to the total emissions, respectively.

Contribution of Major Categories to 2005 Point Source Criteria Pollutant Emissions in Minnesota

There were ten categories that collectively accounted for about 84% of the total point source emissions in 2005. The largest source category was electric utilities, which accounted for 55.6% of point source emissions.

Contribution of Major Categories to 2005 Point Source Criteria Pollutant Emissions in Minnesota

Total criteria pollutant (including Ammonia, CO, NOx, PM10, SO2 and VOC) emissions from point sources: 0.363 million tons.

Contribution of Major Categories to 2005 Nonpoint Source Criteria Pollutant Emissions in Minnesota

The major contributors of nonpoint source emissions were unpaved roads, agriculture production - crops, tilling, and residential wood burning. About 60% of the nonpoint source emissions were attributed to these three source categories in 2005.

Contributions of Major Categories to 2005 Nonpoint Source Criteria Pollutant Emissions in Minnesota

Total criteria pollutant (including Ammonia, CO, NOx, PM10, SO2 and VOC) emissions from nonpoint sources: 1.24 million tons

Contribution of Major Categories to 2005 Onroad Mobile Source Criteria Pollutant Emissions in Minnesota

The largest emission contributor of onroad mobile sources was light duty gasoline vehicles, which accounted for 45.4% of emissions from onroad mobile sources in 2005. Light duty gasoline trucks also contributed a significant portion of emissions from onroad mobile sources.

Contribution of Major Categories to 2005 Onroad Mobile Source Criteria Pollutant Emissions in Minnesota

Total criteria pollutant (including Ammonia, CO, NOx, PM10, SO2 and VOC) emissions from onroad mobile sources: 1.40 million tons.

Contribution of Major Categories to 2005 Nonroad Mobile Source Criteria Pollutant Emissions in Minnesota

Emissions from recreational equipment were ranked number 1 with a contribution of 20% to the total nonroad mobile source emissions. Lawn and garden equipment, pleasure craft, commercial equipment, and agricultural equipment each put more than 10% contributions to the total.
