Economic Benefits of NOx Control: Design and Application for the Eastern U.S.

This study extends work done by McGartland and Ostro (1985) entitled The Economic Benefits of Controlling Volatile Organic Compounds and Nitrogen Oxides: A Generic Approach. That study examined the benefits of NOx control for human health and welfare indirectly through its combined effect with volatile organic compounds (VOC) upon ozone formation, and through the direct effects of NO2. The current study describes possible refinements and extensions to the generic approach for NOx control benefits and applies a refined approach to a case study of alternative NOx controls on coal-fired power plants in the Eastern U.S.
