This report provides guidance on U.S. best practices in air quality planning and recommendations intended to assist Jiangsu Province and the three pilot cities with developing the next generation of air quality plans. Control strategies are presented for reducing emissions of PM2.5, PM2.5 precursors (SO2, NOX, and VOC), and hazardous air pollutants. Consideration is also given to energy planning and to greenhouse gas emissions, specifically CO2.
