OVERVIEW OF TRANSPORTATION AND STATIONARY-SOURCE CONTROL OPTIONS

An introduction to the subject of cost-effectiveness in selecting air-pollution control options is provided by offering an overview of control options for both stationary and mobile sources of air pollution and by identifying some historical obstacles to comparative analysis. After the traditional stationary-source control options presented in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guideline document Control Techniques for Volatile Organic Emissions from Stationary Sources are summarized, mobile-source control options, including transportation control measures, are described and grouped by applying the stationary-source categorization scheme. Some cost-effectiveness analysis problems common in evaluating both transportation and stationary-source controls are identified and the institutional obstacles that continue to inhibit effective comparative analysis and problem solving are noted.
