What exactly is "clean fire" ammunition?

I went plinking today and the guys says, "We only allow clean fire ammunition."

I brought Wolf and WWB with me. He said that I couldn't use either of it and brings out this Winchester "clean fire" stuff, at least that's what it said on the box. He said that indoor ranges are mandated by the EPA to require "clean fire" ammunition.

When I went to this range before, they didn't care what you shot.

I was ready to turn around and go home because I don't like it when I'm forced to buy their ammunition. But I had brought my neighbor who really wanted to shoot so we stayed. He brought out some reloaded stuff that wasn't expensive but more than I like to pay.

What gives with this "clean fire" ammunition?
