Air Toxics in New England
The air we breathe can be contaminated with pollutants from factories, power plants, motor vehicles, the products we use and many other sources. These pollutants have long been a major concern because of the harmful effects they have on peoples' health and the environment.
On this website, you can find general information about air toxics, what EPA is doing to reduce ambient air toxics levels, information on the reductions we have seen to date from large New England manufacturing companies, as well as links to other related websites.
