Workshop 1011

1011 - A Marriage of Convenience: Partnering Greenhouse Gas and Air Quality Management, Lessons Learned and Future Research Needs

Thursday, January 21 10:00 AM- 1:00 PM ET
Workshop | AICP Certification
Karin Landsberg, Washington State Department of Transportation,
Gregory Rowangould, University of Vermont

Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Mitigation (AMS10)

 

Transportation agencies are increasingly connecting GHG mitigation and air quality (AQ) management. The topics have obvious synergies; yet GHG and AQ control programs, regulatory requirements, and analysis resources are not always in alignment. Join us for a discussion of practical analysis lessons, information gaps, and needed research. An expert panel will examine the similarities and differences in criteria air pollutants, air toxics, and GHG emissions. Workshop participants will be able to share ideas and help prioritize future research needs. Topics covered will range from the assessment and management of project-level emissions to emissions associated with transportation systems at the regional, state and national scales.
