  • Update and revision of Turkish air quality regulation

    The Air Quality Assurance Regulation (AQAR) was issued on October 1986. This regulation was basically a direct translation of the German TA-Luft of 1984. The main purpose of AQAR was to control the effect of industry, domestic heating and Traffic on ambient air quality which previously had not adequately been represented. Two new regulations, "Industry Related Air Pollution Control Regulation" ...

  • Idealized Air Quality Regulation: A One-Atmosphere Approach

    After almost 40 years of experience with the U.S. Clean Air Act (CAA), many of the original goals of the regulation have been achieved. The CAA and its subsequent amendments have been driven largely by science and technology, linking the Earth’s atmosphere with public health and welfare and sources of pollution. Knowledge in the 1960s about the atmosphere that ...

  • The Emissions Trifecta: Combining Title V, Air Emissions and GHG Reporting

    With greenhouse gas (GHG) and other pollutants meeting increased scrutiny worldwide, governmental agencies have put multiple regulations and environmental programs in place to tackle this growing problem. But effectively tracking and managing data for Title V, an air emissions inventory and the EPA’s new mandatory GHG reporting rule can prove to be overwhelming for companies, consuming ...

  • A cost-effective method for controlling compost air emissions

    In October 2007, ECS began conducting trials at California State University Fresno (CSUF) to explore using the new patent pending AC Composter (ACC) covered aerated static pile system to manage dairy manure solids and comply with airquality standards. A two-zone portable pilot system was delivered by ECS and installed at the CSUF research dairy. This research is being conducted under a Phase I ...

  • Recovering Valuable Chemicals from Air Emissions

    Air emissions in many cases are a waste of valuable natural resources that should have become useful chemicals. In some cases the economic payback from recycling/reuse of air emissions can be almost as much a motivation to control air pollution as government regulations. Examples of recycling and reuse of air emissions are sulfur oxides emissions that can be made into sulfuric acid, cement ...


  • National Air Pollutant Emission Trends, 1900-1998

     Executive Summary What information is presented in this report? This report presents the United States (U.S.) Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) latest estimates of national emissions for criteria air pollutants: carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOX ), volatile organic compounds (VOC), sulfur dioxide (SO2 ), particulate matter (PM) less than 10 ...

  • Can Composting BMPS Reduce Air Emissions?

    Imagine a scenario where all yard trimmings collected for recycling have to be received, processed and composted under the cover of a building. It would be tough for most yard trimmings composting facilities to survive the expense. Yet this situation could have occurred in Southern California. At one point, the South Coast ...

  • Bottom line on regulating greenhouse gases under the clean air act

    How can the EPA regulate GHGs? Doesn’t the Clean Air Act only apply to air pollutants? An April 2007 Supreme Court decision (Massachusetts v. EPA) ruled that GHGs are air pollutants under the Clean Air Act. The court instructed the EPA to decide whether GHG emissions endanger public health and/or welfare, or if current science is too uncertain to make a reasonable judgment. In response to the ...

  • Suddenly greenhouse gas regulations

    FROM a whisper to a scream, from 0 to 60 in 4 seconds or less, whether you prefer music metaphors or car metaphors, all of a sudden it seems that regulation of greenhouse gases (GHGs) is about to descend upon us. My reading list on the plane today includes the new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency GHG reporting requirements, a draft protocol from the California Climate Action Registry (CCAR) ...

  • Regulation of greenhouse gases under section 115 of The Clean Air Act

    Section 115 of the Clean Air Act, among the various options under the current act, may offer EPA the most effective, flexible, economically reasonable, and legally supportable means by which to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. The authors argue that Section 115, the section explicitly crafted to address international air pollution, has the potential to provide an appropriately flexible path ...

  • The shifting sands of GHG regulation

    So far this year, there have been significant developments on U.S. climate change policy, including movement toward mandatory reporting and regulation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the federal level via either a cap-and-trade program or possibly existing Clean Air Act mechanisms. While the specifics are still uncertain regarding how these regulatory developments and legislative actions ...
