Cost And Welfare: A Simulation of Establishing A Unified Carbon Market In China

BackgroundGlobal warming has aroused wide concern of international community, which has reached a consensus on the carbon abatement. In 2017, China should have established a unified market for

Impact of Resource-Based Economic Transformation Policy on Sulfur Dioxide Emissions: A Case Study of Shanxi Province

Air pollution, particularly SO2 emission, has become a global problem, seriously threatening the sustainable development and health of mankind. Based on the panel data of 248 prefecture-level cities

Effectiveness of clean development policies on coal-fired power generation: an empirical study in China

The results show that the annual release amount of driving policies for the clean development of coal-fired power in China presents a trend of fluctuating growth.

Command-and-control regulation, incentive for pollution abatement, and market structure

This paper analyzes the effect of command-and-control regulation on firms’ incentives for pollution abatement, market structure, and social welfare. We consider a regulation under which firms are not

Marginal Benefit to South Asian Economies from SO2 Emissions Mitigation and Subsequent Increase in Monsoon Rainfall

Sulphate aerosols are dominated by SO2 emissions from coal-burning for the Indian electricity sector and they are thought to have a short term but significant, negative impact on South Asian Summer

Regional Variation in the Carbon Dioxide Emission Efficiency of Construction Industry in China: Based on the Three-Stage DEA Model

China’s construction industry emits a huge amount of carbon dioxide with the extensive and rapid development, and the carbon dioxide emissions from construction sector have become a social problem.

Long-term trends in air quality in major cities in the UK and India: a view from space

Abstract. Air quality networks in cities can be costly and inconsistent and typically monitor a few pollutants. Space-based instruments provide global coverage spanning more than a decade to



Cost-minimizing regulation of sulfur emissions: regional gains in electric power.

Environmental regulations set maximum allowable rates for sulfur dioxide emissions from electric utilities. By ignoring firm differences in marginal abatement costs and preventing emissions trading,

The cost of air pollution abatement

Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the authors have developed comprehensive estimates of pollution abatement costs by industry sector for several major air pollutants. Their results provide

Cost analysis of a coal-fired power plant using the NPV method

The present study investigates the impact of various factors affecting coal-fired power plant economics of 210 MW subcritical unit situated in north India for electricity generation. In this paper,
