Air and Climate Change Research

Featured Resource

The Village Green Project: is a community-based system that repeatedly measures select gases and particles so residents can monitor local air quality and know what’s in their air. EPA expects the Village Green monitor will be operating this summer.  Stay tuned to the blog for more.

GEMS: Great Moments in Environmental Science

Better Burning, Better Breathing: Cleaner Stoves
EPA researchers are testing performance and emissions of solid-fuel cook stoves.

Transforming Paper Mill Pollution into Commercial Resource
EPA-pioneered green chemistry technology that filters toxic pollutants from industrial waste and turns it into a marketable resource has the potential to pay big dividends for paper mills.

Mobile Air Monitoring Detects Hard-to-Find Air Pollution Problems
EPA scientists examine nanoparticle impacts on vehicle emissions and air pollution.

Climate Change/Technology Assessment Source/Emissions Characterization Combustion/Emission Control Indoor Air Quality

Risk Management Air Research studies, develops, and evaluates technologies for control and prevention of air pollution emissions from key sources, including utility and industrial plants, residential and open biomass combustion, and waste incineration. The program addresses problems ranging from improving indoor air quality to understanding sources of greenhouse gases.
