6 Oct 2012Updated Emission Factor Toolkit (version 5.1.3) released

Version 5.1.3 of the Emission Factor Toolkit (EFT) was released on 30th August 2012. This version includes some corrections to the factors given in the previous release, version 5.1.2.

This amendment to the EFT has delayed the planned update of ADMS-Urban, ADMS-Roads and ADMS-Airport, as it is necessary to include the corrected EFT version 5.1.3 factors in the models. CERC plan to include the vehicle emission factors from the latest version of the EFT in updates to ADMS-Urban, ADMS-Roads and ADMS-Airport before the end of November 2012.
