Effects of decreased greenhouse gas emissions on emissions to air

The effects on emissions of various air pollutants that occur when you reduce greenhouse gas emissions depend on how the emissions are reduced. Switching from using coal or fuel oil to using either natural gas or biomass would be expected to reduce SO2 emissions. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by selecting low GHG-intensity fuels can affect particulate emissions, with the effect ranging from strong cobenefits to strong trade-offs. Increasing carbon storage, either in the forest or in products, is not expected to impact sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), or particulate emissions.
