New Jobs — Cleaner Air: Employment Effects Under Planned Changes to the EPA’s Air Pollution Rules

James Heintz, Heidi Garrett-Peltier and Ben Zipperer

Published Studies from Political Economy Research Institute, University of Massachusetts at Amherst

Abstract: In this study commissioned by Ceres, James Heintz, Heidi Garrett-Peltier, and Ben Zipperer examine the economic impacts of air pollution regulations forthcoming from the Environmental Protection Agency: the Clean Air Transport Rule governing sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions, and the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Utility Boilers rule, which will set limits for hazardous air pollutants. Focusing on 36 states, the study assesses the potential employment impacts of the transformation of the nation’s energy generation plants to a cleaner, more efficient fleet, through investments in pollution controls and the retirement of outdated plants.
