About this course:

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Regional Clean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM) program was adopted in fall 1993 and started on January 1, 1994. It is a cap-and-trade program for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur oxides (SOx) emissions, and has been very successful in reducing emissions of both pollutants. The SCAQMD Governing Board voted to terminate the NOx part of the RECLAIM program in 2016, and their staff have been working on that since then. It is a very difficult task, with many complex issues that have yet to be resolved. The restrictions imposed by COVID-19 have also made the process more difficult.
