In C3IAM model, we consider both GHG emissions and traditional air pollutant emissions. Besides energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2), CO2 from other sources, methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) are treated as GHGs in the model. The traditional air pollutants considered are carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrous oxides (NOx), ammonia (NH3), black carbon (BC), organic carbon (OC) and non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs).

In the sub-sections of this chapter, the GHG and non-GHG emissions included in C3IAM are presented.
