Acid Rain Program

Project Description
The overall goal of the Acid Rain Program is to achieve
significant environmental and public health benefits through
reductions in emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen
oxides (NOx), the primary causes of acid rain. To achieve this
goal at the lowest cost to society, the program employs both
traditional and innovative, market-based approaches for
controlling air pollution. In addition, the program encourages
energy efficiency and pollution prevention.
