Facts, Figures, and Findings from EPRI Research, Reports, and Other Sources
As interest in natural gas grows, it is important to understand the environmental impacts of increased development. EPRI, in collaboration with Drexel University and Aerodyne Research, completed an air quality monitoring study in a critically under-sampled region of intense natural gas development in Pennsylvania. The measurements, which include ambient pollutant concentrations near development sites and regional background levels, provide an important benchmark for future research on natural gas development emissions in the region. Prior to this, little was known about natural gas development emissions of criteria pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, ...
