Strategic Toxic Air Reduction Program

The Strategic Toxic Air Reduction Program (STAR) is a regulatory program that provides a framework for assessing and addressing toxic air emissions in Louisville Metro. It was created in response to several studies which showed that Louisville had unacceptably high levels of toxic chemicals in the air, particularly in the neighborhoods around a cluster of chemical plants known as Rubbertown. Since the Air Pollution Control District first implemented STAR in 2005, emissions of toxic chemicals have dropped almost 80 percent in Louisville/Jefferson County.

More information on STAR can be found below. For an overview, consider watching a recording of APCD's Clearing the Air Workshop on Environmental Justice and the STAR Program
