UC Davis Recent Work Title Technology Innovations and Experience Curves for Nitrogen Oxides

  title={UC Davis Recent Work Title Technology Innovations and Experience Curves for Nitrogen Oxides},
  author={Sonia Yeh and David A. Hounshell},
This paper reviews the regulatory history for nitrogen oxides (NOx) pollutant emissions from stationary sources, primarily in coal-fired power plants. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is one of the six criteria pollutants regulated by the 1970 Clean Air Act where National Ambient Air Quality Standards were established to protect public health and welfare. We use patent data to show that in the cases of Japan, Germany, and the United States, innovations in NOx control technologies did not occur until… CONTINUE READING
