Although businesses contribute a much smaller percentage of air pollution than they did 30 years ago, regulations are necessary to ensure we maintain those gains.
We regulate heavy-industries like cement plants, foundries, industrial boilers, and asphalt plants, as well as many smaller businesses that individually may not emit large quantities of air pollutants. Cumulatively, small businesses like gas stations and spray-coating facilities can have a major impact on our air quality.
We also regulate activities that generate odors which could be a nuisance to neighboring communities. These include commercial composting facilities, animal rendering plants, and even coffee roasters.
