Environmental Economics

The Economic Effects of Environmental Regulations on the Pollution Control Industry

The objectives included: Identifying constraints on the ability of the pollution control industry (PCI) to support future regulatory needs; evaluating the performance of participating companies; estimating markets and associated employment; and updating an earlier 1972 analysis (EE-0322A and B). The analysis is both descriptive and diagnostic, addressing the impact of the regulatory process upon the industry and, conversely, the impact of the industry upon the regulatory process. A diagnostic examination of the impact of the regulatory process upon the industry focuses on four major issues of concern to the PCI and of importance to future regulation: the municipal bidding process; the role of Federal R&D; the effects of technology forcing standards, and the operability and maintenance of control systems.
