A new version of Defra's Emission Factor Toolkit has been released recently containing minor bug fixes. Version 6.0.2 was released in November 2014, following on from the releases of versions 6.0 and 6.0.1 earlier in the year.
ADMS-Urban 3.4, ADMS-Roads 3.4 and ADMS-Airport 3.4 incorporate the EFT emission factors from version 6.0.1. These emission factors are still valid, since they are unaffected by the changes made for the release of EFT version 6.0.2.
Details of the minor bug fixes in version 6.0.2 of the EFT are provided on pages 5 and 22 of the EFT User Guide.

We are pleased to announce the release of ADMS-Urban 3.4. Users who have valid support will be eligible for the new version and should receive an email shortly with download details. For more information about the new features of the product, please see the What's New in ADMS-Urban 3.4 page for further details.
We are pleased to announce the release of a new product ADMS-Urban Regional Model Link (ADMS-Urban RML).
This is an innovative automated system for nesting the high resolution air quality model ADMS-Urban in a regional air quality model such as CMAQ, CAMX or EMEP4UK, using meteorological data from the meso-scale WRF model. The output from the ADMS-Urban RML system comprises predictions of pollutant concentrations for an urban area, which take into account both regional and local pollutant transport and chemistry effects.
For more information, please visit the ADMS-Urban RML web page.
