Heater program cuts pollution health problems

A new pilot project that allows health officials to conduct testing for pollutants in vehicles using a heat source is proving controversial. The Health Department is using the program to test vehicles with more than one heater to confirm the problem at no cost.

The heater program, called HVAC Emissions Reduction (HRE), is part of a multi-year partnership between the Health Department, the Maryland Sustainable Vehicle Council and CleanSource. The partnership focuses on reducing air emissions in vehicles and expanding transportation choices to reduce air pollutants.

The pilot is being run by the Public Service Alliance of Maryland (PSAM), a coalition of the state’s largest health care organizations, and the Maryland Environmental Protection Agency (MEPA), a state environmental agency.

“We don’t know whether안산출장샵 안산출장마사지 the heaters in the system will change the air quality, or in what ways heaters can reduce pollution,” said Mark R. Miller, executive director of the MEPA. “In this case, we’re looking for information on the health impacts of air pollutants and then we’re going to decide whether to use our testing and we’re going to use it to help other entities and to take actions where there 제주출장안마may be public health benefit to us.”

The HEVAC program was approved in July 2016 by the MEPA for use on all state vehicles at no cost.

As part of testing, heaters are tested for ozone, carbon monoxide, ozone and nitrogen dioxide levels and carbon monoxide emission levels. Results of the heaters are provided to the MEPA, HRE, the Health Department and the Environmental Protection Agency as well as the U.S. Department of Commerce for review.

Measures include lowering a vehicle’s range and intensity, testing for harmful air pollutants and monitoring vehicle performance. If the heaters are proven not to have an effect, the HEVAC program closes the device if no further improvement is recommended. If there is improvement, there is an automatic suspension of the HEVAC program.

“We want to make sure we’re testing the things that are going to help the environment,” said Meera Sharma, director of environmental and health affairs with the HEVAC program. “If you’re on the road to healthy air, then it is import카지노 사이트ant that the heaters are not doing harm.”

Health department officials say they hope the pilot will encourage other entities to make their own heaters more cost effective.

“If they can put heaters into the air system and provide them the most benefit
