This report documents the results of a study to determine the costs associated with controlling reactive organic emissions in the Metropolitan Los Angeles Air Quality Control Region. An inventory of organic emissions from 26 categories of stationary and mobile sources was developed for the calendar year 1975. The photochemical reactivity of the emissions from each category was determined in terms of a 3-class reactivity classification scheme. The costs associated with reducing the emissions from each category were estimated by assuming the application of the most cost effective combination of available control equipment. The costs associated with reducing the emissions from all sources were estimated by assuming the application of the most cost effective controls selected from those available for all source types. It was concluded that only approximately 53% of the total organic emissions could be eliminated using currently available control technology.
