Control of Stationary and Mobile Source Air Pollution: Reducing Emissions of Hydrocarbons for Ozone Abatement in Connecticut

Brian Heninger () and Farhed Shah

Land Economics, 1998, vol. 74, issue 4, 497-513

Abstract: Both stationary and mobile sources are major contributors to many air quality problems. Typically, regulators have more control over total emissions from stationary sources, but only control emissions per vehicle mile from mobile sources, taking total vehicle miles of travel (VMT) as given. A cost minimization model is developed to compare emissions control policies which reduce VMT, to other prevailing stationary and mobile source emission control strategies. Connecticut data for the ground-level ozone problem is used to show that controlling VMT, through an optimally determined gasoline tax, will marginally reduce total social costs of Connecticut's emission control program.
