I have a series of points that represent oil and gas wells (over 1,000), and an emissions value for each well. I created 3 concentric buffers that represent increasing distance from the well, and assigned a fraction of the emission value to each buffer. There are many instances where wells are close together, and their buffers overlap. In these overlapping areas, I would like the emission values of the buffers to add. I tried using the raster to polygon tool, but the overlapping emissions did not sum.

Try using the intersect tool, this will return polygons in your instance, the areas they overlap. You could then do some math for your final values
