There are a range of business, navy, public-use and even private airports during the islands of Puerto Rico. Quite a few of these airports are used by piston-motor plane that function on leaded aviation gasoline, also known as avgas. Avgas from these aircraft are the greatest remaining combination resource of guide emissions to air in the United States according to the U.S. Environmental Security Agency (EPA).

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reports that house owners and operators of more than 167,000 piston-engine aircraft operating in the United States rely on avgas to energy their aircraft. Avgas is the only remaining direct-made up of transportation gasoline. The direct in avgas prevents detrimental motor knock, or detonation, that can result in a sudden motor failure. Sad to say, direct is a harmful substance and this is why the FAA, EPA and sector are partnering to get rid of it from aviation gasoline in the long term.

Back in 2019, FAA revealed the actuality sheet Leaded Aviation Fuel and the Environment. In it, tetraethyl lead, or TEL, is described as the compound that contains direct that is made use of as an additive to strengthen octane. The publication also shares the reality that the ban of TEL in car fuel was phased in about a number of several years and was largely accomplished by 1986, resulting in substantial reductions of direct emissions to the natural environment. TEL has not still been banned for use in avgas, mainly because no operationally protected different is at this time obtainable. Nevertheless, FAA acknowledges that that all kinds of lead are toxic if inhaled or ingested, and that direct can affect human overall health in quite a few ways, including the nervous procedure, pink blood cells, and the cardiovascular and immune systems.
