Clean Air Act

Emissions of air from both stationary and moving sources are governed by the Clean Air Act (CAA), a comprehensive federal statute. To safeguard public health and welfare and to control emissions of harmful air pollutants, this law gives the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the authority to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).

The course is designed to help students consider the underlying logic of the CAA’s operation, which NSPS, NESHAP and air toxics source category standards apply at a particular site and the process and purpose of reviewing new sources.
