The table is laid out as a score card. Each technology within the tool is laid out on the vertical axis on the left. The pollutants are laid out on the horizontal axis at the top. A green color indicates a particular technology has a high impact on that particular pollutant. Likewise, yellow and red indicate medium and low impact respectively.
