Pollution Abatement Costs and Expenditures: 2005

The Pollution Abatement Costs and Expenditures (PACE) survey is the most comprehensive national source of pollution abatement costs and expenditures related to environmental protection for the manufacturing sector of the United States. The PACE survey collects facility-level data on pollution abatement capital expenditures and operating costs associated with compliance to local, state, and federal regulations and voluntary or market-driven pollution abatement activities. The survey has not been administered since 2000 in order for the EPA to evaluate the PACE survey and guidelines. The 2005 PACE survey is the result of a multi-year redevelopment/evaluation effort by the EPA to ensure the accuracy of the survey responses. The redevelopment/evaluation effort has been well-documented and links to research papers and reports can be found here.
