COST-EFFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS OF THE PROPOSED REVISIONS IN THE EXHAUST EMISSION STANDARDS FOR NEW AND IN-USE GAS TURBINE AIRCRAFT ENGINES BASED ON INDUSTRY SUBMITTALS
This report provides analysis of several control strategies. Those studied were: the control of newly manufactured gas turbine engines in 1981 for HC and CO only; retrofit of in-use gas turbine engines in 1985 for HC and CO only; and the control of newly manufactured gas turbine engines in 1984 for HC, CO, and NOx. The cost information is incomplete and poorly documented due to a lack of detailed data. Additional error was introduced by the fact that the nature of the study demanded that assumptions and predictions be made in an attempt to ascertain future facts. The above considerations aside, the cost-effectiveness figures generated by this analysis represent EPA's best estimate of the costs imposed by the control strategies under consideration, based on industry submittals. For the purposes of this study, the JT8D was assumed to be out of production by 1984. This is no longer true and the planned growth version of this engine will be examined in a later report.
