CLEAN AIR TIPS
The 6 Common Air Pollutants
Sunday, March 01, 2015 - The Clean Air Act requires EPA to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards for six common air pollutants. These commonly found air pollutants (also known as "criteria pollutants") are found all over the United States.

These pollutants can harm your health and the environment, and cause property damage.
