The Incremental Cost-Effectiveness of Selected EPA Regulations

This study aims to develop a new basis for analyzing EPA's past and present regulatory strategies and a data base on which others may build improved analyses of cost-effectiveness. The study examines the effects of environmental regulations between and within such industries as the iron and steel industry and the chemicals industry. Two kinds of data were developed: The cost of control and the amount of pollution controlled. Using this information, the report derives estimates of the incremental and average cost-effectiveness of pollution controls.
