AN ANALYSIS OF AIR POLLUTION CONTROL IN N.S.W.
Annual rates of expenditure for NSW (New South Wales, Australia) have been established, and the costs of vehicle operation and maintenance and the costs of restrictions on the usage of fuel have been estimated. Expenditure per head is currently about $17 and could rise to about $40 by 1985 if satisfactory air quality is to be maintained. Although urban growth will necessitate increased expenditure on traditional pollutants such as acid gases, the most rapid increases will occur in the control of the emerging pollutants such as photochemical smog. The costs for stationary plant control and the costs for motor vehicle control are detailed. The cost of air pollution control is considered moderate when compared to other "quality of life" expenditures. The cost analysis provided here could form the basis for the use of more sophisticated economics in the formulation of policy on future air quality.
