Risk Management Research
State-of-the-Science Technology Assessments – Air and Energy
The air we breathe is being polluted by our everyday activities—driving cars, burning fossil fuels, and manufacturing chemicals. These activities add gases and particles to the air. In high concentrations, they can harm us and our environment.
To combat these problems, EPA scientists and engineers conduct cutting-edge research to replicate and solve today's most challenging air pollution problems. EPA's air research programs seek to protect clean air by characterizing emissions, developing and evaluating technologies, and performing assessments of cost-effective multimedia environmental management approaches for a healthy and sustainable environment.
