Welcome to the Partners for Clean Air website!

This site provides information and tools to reduce air pollution.  Check out our Publications & Reports  page which has existing laws, funding opportunities, general air quality information, and technologies to clear the air.

An easy step you can take to improve the air is to not idle your vehicle unnecessarily.

Idling your vehicle for more than ten seconds uses more fuel than turning off and restarting the engine. The quickest way to warm up an engine is to drive down the road.  When idling, fuel is not completely combusted and can damage the cylinder walls and spark plugs.

There are efforts to encourage central Ohio cities to adopt internal no-idling policies.  These policies save tax payer dollars and reduce pollution.  To see if your community has an internal no-idling policy for their city fleets, contact the Ohio Environmental Council at OEC@theOEC.org or 614-487-7506, ext. 115, or Evelyn Ebert, Air Quality Coordinator at the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) – eebert@morpc.org or (614) 228-2663.

There are efforts to encourage central Ohio cities to adopt city-wide fuel conservation ordinances.  To learn more about fuel conservation ordinances and template language, click here.
