This report documents the work accomplished during the FY 1993-94 'Benard J. Steigerwald Opportunity for Independent Study'. It discusses why and how air pollution control cost indexes were developed and presents index values for several periods (quarters). These indexes are used to adjust ('escalate') control equipment and total annual costs from one quarter to another. In all, 16 indexes were developed and are presented herein, one Equipment Cost Index (ECI) and one Total Annual Cost Index (TACI) for each of eight control device categories. These indexes-collectively known as the Vatavuk Air Pollution Control Cost Indexes-can be used to escalate costs from the initial (base) period (first quarter 1994) to any quarter thereafter. In this report, final ECI and TACI are given for the second, third, and fourth quaters of 1994; and preliminary indexes, for first quarter 1995.
