STAREG will consider the effects that launches have on air quality. We will aim to when possible provide a breakdown of all the harmful chemicals released during each launch and the areas of the atmospheric environment that are affected. Reporting will also include whether emissions are contributing to greenhouse gases, ozone depletion, or are hazardous to both animals and humans. Another consideration that will be accounted for will be the impact caused by noise pollution. STAREG will seek to monitor potentially affected wildlife and population centres nearby with GHG emissions resulting from the actual launches also reported.
