Volume I is a user guide for a standard procedure for the engineering cost analysis of pollution abatement operations and processes. The procedure applies to projects in various economic sectors: private, regulated, and public. Volume II, the bulk of the document, contains 11 appendices (providing detailed background material) and 2 comprehensive examples. Appendix subjects are: Capital Investment Estimation, Annual Expense Estimate, The Cash Flow Concept, Discrete and Continuous Interest Factors, Measures of Merit, Cost Indices and Inflation Factors, Rates of Return and Interest Rates, Methods of Reliability Assessment, Sensitivity Analysis, Example I--Cost Analysis of Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) Retrofit Facility, and Example II--Cost Analysis of Chlorolysis Plant. The Measures of Merit appendix considers: return on investment, internal rate of return, payout time, equivalent annual cost, and unit costs. A glossary is provided.
