EPA Determines that Aircraft Emissions Contribute to Climate Change Endangering Public Health and the Environment
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized a determination under the Clean Air Act on July 25, 2016 that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from certain types of aircraft engines contribute to the pollution that causes climate change and endangers Americans’ health and the environment. The findings are for carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), all of which contribute to GHG pollution that represents the largest driver of human-caused climate change. These particular GHGs come primarily from engines used on large commercial jets.
