Air Emissions Inventories

What does "NEC" stand for in the emissions sectors?

NEC means “not elsewhere classified” and includes SCCs that are not assigned to any of the other specific industrial process sectors. If you look at the SCC code table available at the SCC web site and filter on the Sector name that includes “NEC”, you can see the type of SCCs and emissions included in that sector.
