Air Pollution

Beyond Toxics plays key role in stopping Covanta giveaway

Beyond Toxics played a key role in derailing a bill in the 2019 legislature to exempt the Covanta trash incinerator from carbon pollution reduction requirements. | Check out Lisa Arkin's blog, “Trashy and Tricky.”

Cleaner Air Oregon policy enacted

Beyond Toxics played a leading role in a broad coalition to finalize the Cleaner Air Oregon policy enactment. We were tough on advocating for stronger standards that force industrial polluters to reduce their emissions to protect community health and to achieve clean and healthy air. Introducing a bill for Community Toxics Right to Know in 2017 led the state of Oregon to adopt a new requirement that industries report their air toxics emissions inventory and make the data accessible to the public.
