MOBILE SOURCES EMISSION CONTROL COST-EFFECTIVENESS: ISSUES, UNCERTAINTIES, AND RESULTS
This paper discusses some important methodological issues involved in cost-effectiveness calculation for mobile sources of emission and proposes appropriate, systematic methods for dealing with these issues. Various studies have been completed recently to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of mobile source emission control measures. These studies resulted in wide variations in the cost-effectiveness for same control measures. Methodological assumptions used in each study are presented and, based on the proposed methods for cost-effectiveness calculation, adjustments are applied to the original estimates in each study to correct inappropriate methodological assumptions and to make the studies comparable. Finally, mobile source control measures are ranked on the basis of the adjusted cost-effectiveness estimates.
