The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a pre-publication version of an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANRPM) on lead in avgas. The ANPRM signals the agency’s intent to investigate lead emissions from general aviation aircraft further under the regulatory processes of the Clean Air Act. This ANPRM is a first step in a process that might lead eventually to regulations concerning the use of lead as an additive in avgas.
