criteria pollutants

Pollutants that can injure health, harm the environment, and cause property damage.

In 1997, the criteria pollutants in the United States included the following:

Carbon monoxide (CO)
Lead (Pb)
Nitrogen dioxide (NO2)
Ozone (O3)
Particulate matter with aerodynamic size less than or equal to 10 μm (PM10)
Sulfur dioxide (SO2).

Regulations govern the concentrations of criteria pollutants at receptors located in various locations within the community.
Compare air pollutants.
