U.S. EPA moves toward regulating aircraft emissions

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 06/11/2015 - 01:18
By Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration on Wednesday released a scientific finding that greenhouse gases from aircraft pose a risk to human health, paving the way for regulating emissions from the U.S. aviation industry. The "endangerment finding" by the Environmental Protection Agency would allow the administration to implement a global carbon dioxide emissions standard being developed by the United Nations' International Civil Aviation Organization. In its 194-page finding, the EPA said it took "a preliminary but necessary first step to begin to address greenhouse gas emissions from the aviation sector, the highest-emitting category of transportation sources that the EPA has not yet addressed." The ICAO is due to release its CO2 standard in February 2016, with the aim of adopting it later that year.
