This paper uses Wirl's [Wirl, F., 1995. The exploitation of fossil fuel under the threat of global warming and carbon taxes: A dynamic game approach. Environmental and Resource Economics, 5, 333–352.] model designed to analyze the long-term bilateral interdependence between a resource-exporting cartel and a coalition of resource-importing country(More)
Much of the literature on international environmental agreements uses purely static models of transboundary or global pollution, despite the fact that the important problems to which this literature is addressed involve stock pollutants. The few papers that study IEAs in the context of dynamic models of stock pollutants do not allow for the possibility that(More)
In this study, the destruction rate of a volatile waste destruction system based on a microwave plasma torch operating at atmospheric pressure was investigated. Atmospheric air was used to maintain the plasma and was introduced by a compressor, which resulted in lower operating costs compared to other gases such as argon and helium. To isolate the output(More)
A new system for destroying volatile organic waste based on a microwave plasma torch that operates at atmospheric pressure and is coupled to a reactor affording isolation of output gases and adjustment of the plasma discharge atmosphere is proposed. The system was assessed by using carbon tetrachloride as the target volatile organic compound (VOC) and argon(More)
