laboratory research

Strong science is at the foundation of California’s air quality and climate programs. The California Air Resources Board sponsors a comprehensive research program that investigates air pollution’s causes, effects and solutions. The findings of this research support all the regulations on cars, trucks, fuels, power plants, and other pollution sources. The research, which results in five additional dollars for each dollar CARB invests, is done under the guidance of CARB’s Research Screening Committee and in partnership with the campuses of the University of California system and other research institutions.

Approved Research Projects for Fiscal Year 2019-2020

These projects were approved by the Board on March 21, 2019.  Staff will proceed to work with researchers to develop the research projects into complete proposals.  Results are anticipated in three to five years after a project commences.
