EPA's Tier 2 Proposal for Stricter Vehicle Emission Standards: A Fact Sheet

EPA's Tier 2 Proposal for Stricter Vehicle Emission Standards: A Fact Sheet

Date: June 24, 1999
Creator: Bearden, David M
Description: The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 established "Tier 1" standards to limit tailpipe emissions from new motor vehicles, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required to determine if more stringent requirements are needed to attain or maintain National Ambient Air Quality Standards. EPA also must assess the availability and cost-effectiveness of technologies necessary to control emissions. In a report submitted to Congress in August 1998, EPA concluded that tougher standards are necessary and that essential technologies are available and cost-effective

Ethanol and Clean Air: The "Reg-Neg" Controversy and Subsequent Events

Ethanol and Clean Air: The "Reg-Neg" Controversy and Subsequent Events

Date: June 22, 1993
Creator: Segal, Migdon
Description: The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), enacted in 1990, called for cleaner automotive fuels in order to upgrade air quality. This appeared to provide new market potential for ethanol, which is obtained from corn grown in the midwestern United States, and which is already in large-scale use in a blend of ten percent ethanol to ninety percent gasoline. The CAAA left specific details of the clean fuels program to be worked out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in consultation with the interested parties.
