The @EPAgov & the @USCG signed an agreement to enforce US pollution requirements for ships operating in US waters

These requirements establish limits on nitrogen oxides (NOx ) emissions and require the use of fuel with lower sulfur content, protecting people's health and the environment by reducing ozone-producing pollution, which can cause smog and aggravate asthma. The most stringent requirements apply to ships operating within 200 nautical miles of the coast of North America.
