  • Indoor Air Quality - US EPA - Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can damage their health, but may not know that indoor air pollution can also have significant effects. Over the past several decades, our exposure to indoor air pollution is believed to have increased due to a variety of factors, including the construction of more tightly sealed buildings, reduced ventilation rates to save energy, the use of synthetic building materials and furnishings, and the use of chemically formulated personal care products, pesticides and household cleaners
  • National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory - EPA's National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory is part of the Office of Transportation and Air Quality which is responsible for carrying out laws to control air pollution from motor vehicles, engines, and their fuels. The laboratory's primary responsibilities include: evaluating emission control technology; testing vehicles, engines and fuels; and determining compliance with federal emissions and fuel economy standards
  • Scorecard - Find environmental information about your community: learn how bad the pollution is, where the toxic chemicals come from, what the health risks are, and what actions you can take
  • DieselNet - Diesel Emissions Online - Online information service on diesel exhaust emissions, emission control technologies, emission standards, regulations, measurement, health and environmental effects
  • AIRNow - The U.S. EPA, NOAA, NPS, tribal, state, and local agencies developed the AIRNow Web site to provide the public with easy access to national air quality information. The Web site offers daily AQI forecasts as well as real-time AQI conditions for over 300 cities across the US, and provides links to more detailed State and local air quality Web sites
  • Water treatment & Air Purification systems - Water treatment and air purification systems for water recycling, water disinfection, odor control, water filtration using environmentally friendly technologies such as ozon generator and uv disinfectants, biofilters and membrane systems
  • Clean Air Task Force (CATF) - Clean Air Task Force (CATF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring clean air and healthy environments through scientific research, public education, and legal advocacy
