Some state legislatures, however, seemed willing to forego this aid in what some considered an act of civil disobedience. Rather than provoking a confrontation with the states, the EPA chose to allow greater flexibility in auto emissions testing. In The Benefits and Costs of the Clean Air Act, 1970 to 1990 (1997), the first report mandated by the CAA on the monetary costs and benefits of controlling pollution, the EPA concluded that the economic value of clean air programs was forty-two times greater than the total costs of air pollution control during the twenty-year period.
Although RFG combustion results in lower CO emissions, higher carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions result due to the presence of additional oxygen. The most frequently used oxygenates in RFG are ethanol and methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE). Fuel ethanol is derived from fermented agricultural products such as corn. More than 99% of fuel ethanol is produced in the United States, primarily in the corn-growing regions of the Midwest. MTBE is a chemical compound made from methanol and isobutylene. The CAA standards that went into effect in 1995 required those areas with the worst polluted air to sell RFG.
Air Toxics Hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), also referred to as air toxics, are pollutants that can cause severe health effects and/or ecosystem damage. Serious health risks linked to HAPs include cancer, immune system disorders, neurological problems, reproductive effects, and birth defects. The Clean Air Act (CAA) lists 188 substances as HAPs and targets them for regulation in section 112 (b) (1). The air toxics program complements the NAAQS program. Examples of HAPs are benzene, dioxins, arsenic, beryllium, mercury, and vinyl chloride.
