ASABE Revises Standard for Air-quality Terminology

Revised standard contains greenhouse-gas global-warming potentials

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) announces the revision of ANSI/ASABE S588.1, Uniform Terminology for Air Quality.
The use of terminology related to rural air quality has grown with the increased focus by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and others on confined animal feedlot operations. The revised standard contains greenhouse-gas global-warming potentials updated to current federal regulations. It supplements existing ASTM standards and provides consensus definitions for 180 terms.
ASABE is recognized worldwide as a standards developing organization for food, agricultural, and biological systems, with more than 250 standards currently in publication. Conformance to ASABE standards is voluntary, except where required by state, provincial, or other governmental requirements, and the documents are developed by consensus in accordance with procedures approved by the American National Standards Institute.
