Over the past several decades, urban areas in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region have been experiencing increased economic productivity and an explosion in population growth.

MOVES and EMFAC Emissions Modeling

Many areas of the country are struggling to attain national ambient air quality standards, develop greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation plans, and address mobile source air toxics (MSAT) that may affect public health. CS brings broad expertise to these issues, partnering with agencies to model emissions and assess strategies for reducing emissions from transportation sources. 


How can my transportation agency use the EPA’s new emissions model, MOVES?


Government agencies at all levels are increasingly setting aggressive targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and mitigate the potential impact of climate change. These targets can range up to an 80 percent reduction in emissions levels by the year 2050, compared to 1990 levels.
