According to a new report released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), New York businesses and their counterparts across the Northeast are making significant strides in reducing nitrogen oxide emissions. Nitrogen oxide Budget Trading Program cuts, when combined with other nitrogen oxide control programs, have reduced ozone season nitrogen oxide emissions from sources in Northeastern states by 70 percent below 1990 levels. EPA administers the Nitrogen oxide Budget Trading Program, which in 2004 includes 19 states and the District of Columbia. Two more states will join in 2007.
