The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on Thursday its proposed revisions to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone (O3).1 EPA seeks to revise the existing ozone standard of 0.075 parts per million (ppm) that was previously set in March 2008 during the Bush Administration.
