xEmissions is a simple and powerful solution to help companies calculate and track air, water, and waste emissions information. With xEmissions, companies can leverage various libraries and calculation templates to create a new solution or improve their existing spreadsheet solutions. The approach can be cost effective for both small companies and large enterprise organizations.
xEmissions empowers users to stay in control of the calculations going into their emission inventories and regulatory reports. By leveraging Excel®, all calculations are easily identified and tracked for audit purposes. Calculations are not hidden in some complicated calculation engine.
To assure consistent calculations and corporate rollup xEmissions delivers several features including:
- Emissions Factor Library – Assures use of approved emission factors.
- Emissions Data Dictionary – Assures common naming conventions and pick lists information.
- Best Practice Emission Calculation Workbooks – Supports common methods and best practices across the company.
xEmissions supports automated state reporting. Some examples include the Texas STEERS (pipe delimited text file) and Louisiana ERIC (.xlsx file). The xEmissions Data Dictionary supports reporting in state defined names and codes while still allowing corporate naming to be intact for overall rollup of emissions information.
CEMS data can be updated on a regular (daily) basis to support emissions reporting, calculations, and cap and trade position reporting when used in conjunction with xCITSS. This data can be automatically compared to EPA data.
Operations data collection from the field is often an important challenge. With xEmissions field users can use their familiar Excel spreadsheets to post their data into the xEmissions database directly.
