VALE improves airport air quality and provides air quality credits for future airport development. Created in 2004, VALE helps airport sponsors meet their state-related air quality responsibilities under the Clean Air Act. Through VALE, airport sponsors can use Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funds and Passenger Facility Charges (PFCs) to finance low emission vehicles, refueling and recharging stations, gate electrification, and other airport air quality improvements.
As of September 2018, VALE grants have funded 105 projects at 51 airports. Details can be found in the project summary below. VALE grants are expected to reduce ozone emissions by 1,192 tons per year for the next 5 years. This is equivalent to removing 66,550 cars and trucks off the road each year.
