California cuts pesticide VOC emissions

Emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from pesticides in the five California counties not meeting federal air quality standards fell by 8% in May-October 2009 compared with the same period a year earlier. There were double-digit declines in four of the five counties and a 6% increase in Ventura county, according to the California EPA’s Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR). Despite the increase in Ventura county, it is ahead of schedule to meet the 20% drop in VOC emissions from 1990 levels by 2012, the DPR notes. VOC emissions in all five counties were down by 54% on 1990 levels.
