FAA awards $24.5 million in Environmental grants to US Airports

valeProvidenciales, 18 Sept 2015 – U.S. Transportation Secretary, Anthony Foxx recently awarded $24.5 million in FAA grants to 11 airports around the United States.

The money will work to reduce emissions and improve air quality through the FAA’s Voluntary Airport Low Emission (VALE) and Zero Emissions Airport Vehicle (ZEV) programs. Foxx explained “These programs are crucial in efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions and make skies and roads more environmentally-friendly.”

Through VALE, airports are reducing ozone emissions by approximately 801 tons per year, which is equivalent to removing more than 44,735 cars and trucks from the road annually.
