Profitability and good business planning: Instead of reacting to the regulations that are coming soon, you can get ahead of the curve!

Since you know that regulations will affect your business in the next few years, you have time to shop around for the best practices and technologies that allow your business to comply with upcoming regulations as well add profitability and efficiency to your bottom line. Eliminating toxic emissions also reduces risk associated with employee's health as well as fines or costly remediation. As a proactive business, you can avoid such problems by anticipating the coming changes and looking for the win-win strategies. Since many emissions reductions strategies serve to reduce costs and/or update processes and technologies, your business may become more competitive in the process.

Health and environmental effects of toxic air pollutants

People exposed to toxic air pollutants at sufficient concentrations and durations have an increased chance of getting cancer or experiencing other serious health effects. These health effects can include damage to the immune system, as well as neurological, reproductive (e.g., reduced fertility), developmental, respiratory and other health problems. In addition to exposure from breathing air toxics, some toxic air pollutants such as mercury can deposit onto soils or surface waters, where they are taken up by plants and ingested by animals and are eventually magnified up through the food chain. Like humans, animals may experience health problems if exposed to sufficient quantities of air toxics over time.
