TECHNO 2100: The Clean Air Act: Rx for the Air We Breathe iTV Special Premieres on April 21

Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Information Television Network (iTV)

    BOCA RATON, Fla., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Air...it's so essential to life
 that we often take it for granted.  Unfortunately, it's also often polluted.
 Cars, utility companies, oil refineries or even a lawnmower can all spill
 pollutants in the air.
     The Clean Air Act, established to enact national health standards, is
 helping to ensure that the air we all breathe is getting cleaner.  Originally
 created in 1970, in 1990 the Clean Air Act was amended to reflect the changes
 made to our environment by a generation of electricity, industrial & household
 chemicals, transportation and small engines.  Its purpose was to make sure
 that a booming economy didn't come at the cost of blue skies or threaten the
 health of our population.
     Today's amazing technological progress requires government, business and
 consumers to come up with new ways to solve pollution problems.  Beyond
 protecting the public health, the Clean Air Act also helps create incentives
 for technology advances, and innovative companies are embracing this.
     TECHNO 2100: The Clean Air Act: Rx for the Air We Breathe is a 30-minute
 TV special premiering on April 21 that looks at the impact of air quality from
 the backyard to the global neighborhood and shows how new technologies are
 literally offering a breath of fresh air for the future.
     TECHNO 2100: The Clean Air Act: Rx for the Air We Breathe is produced by
 Information Television Network (iTV) in collaboration with the National Park
 Service, Tosco Corporation, Manufacturers of Emission Controls Association, NE
 States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM), South Coast Air Quality
