Data Center Description
The EPA's Clean air markets programs include various market-based
regulatory programs designed to improve air quality. The most
well-known of these programs is EPA's Acid Rain Program, which has the
overall goal of achieving environmental and public health benefits
through reductions in emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen
oxides (NOx)?compounds produced by fossil fuel combustion that
adversely affect air quality, the environment, and public health. In
addition to information on the Acid Rain Program, you will also find
information at this site on other programs that employ cap-and-trade
mechanisms.
