Combustion emissions from rocket launches change the composition of the atmosphere…When an assessment suggests unacceptably large ozone loss for a particular process, regulatory actions to limit or modify that process might be enacted to protect the ozone layer.
Currently, global rocket launches deplete the ozone layer ∼0.03%, an insignificant fraction of the depletion caused by other ozone depletion substances (ODSs). As the space industry grows and ODSs fade from the stratosphere, ozone depletion from rockets could become significant.
