This study of a tax on sulfur emissions, applied on a national basis, uses a comparative statistics approach to project emissions in the absence of air pollution regulations (except the New Source Performance Standards) and emissions and costs under several alternative tax rates for 1978. This study is confined to five major sources of sulfur emissions which account for over 90 percent of all estimated sulfur emissions. These sources range from steam-electric plants which contribute over 50 percent of total sulfur emissions, to sulfuric acid plants which account for less than 2 percent of the total sulfur emission.
