REVIEW OF PAST STUDIES ADDRESSING THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF CO, HC, AND NOX EMISSIONS FROM COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT ON AIR QUALITY

Since 1973, EPA has monitored the progress of technology needed to meet the existing air quality standards for aircraft engine emissions, and reviewed the impact of various classes of aircraft on ambient air quality. As a result, there is now in draft form an NPRM to amend the existing standards. During the preparation of the draft NPRM, several commenters questioned the air quality justifications for certain standards. This report is partial documentation of EPA's review of the past air quality studies, and also a review of air quality justifications for the commercial aircraft emission standards contained in the NPRM.
