Common sources of regulated air emissions are: heating and cooling systems, degreasers, steam generators (i.e., boilers), motor vehicles, turbines, wastewater treatment works, incinerators and fuel dispensing. The Clean Air Act Section 118(a) requires that each agency and employee of the Federal government comply with all Federal, State, interstate and local requirements respecting the control and abatement of air pollution in the same manner and the same extent as any non-governmental entity. Many common sources of air pollutants at Federal facilities burn fossil fuels, resulting in emissions of carbon dioxide, a pollutant which, according to the Energy Information Administration, is still on the increase in our air.
