Environmental press releases pertaining to air pollution control.
The White House strategy also aims to reduce methane leaks from the energy industry.
“Oil and gas methane leakage is the U.S.’s second largest industrial source of heat-trapping pollution, exceeded only by the carbon pollution from power plants and other energy generation uses,” an Energy Collective article reported.
According to the White House strategy, released late last month, wastewater treatment operations are responsible for 2 percent of human-related methane emissions.
The new strategy supports efforts by the U.S. to work with the Global Methane Initiative, a public-private partnership including over 40 countries as well as the top 10 major methane emitters, the strategy said.
