Cap and Trade

The University of Houston Main Campus participates in an emissions banking and trading (EBT) program through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The MECT Program is a market-based cap-and-trade program that implements an annual nitrogen oxides emission cap for applicable facilities in the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria ozone nonattainment area. The University's steam-generating boilers are currently monitored for compliance with this program and any funds generated are used by the University.
