The paper introduces the structure of a tool, being developed by the U.S. EPA's Office of Research and Development, that will be able to analyze the benefits of new technologies and strategies for controlling greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. When completed, the tool will be able to evaluate future emissions of GHG and releases of co-pollutants from all sectors of anthropogenic activity. It will also be able to estimate the cost of the choices. Results will be computed from technology and strategy choices selected by the model's user. The design will be able to facilitate the review of all assumptions and functions. It also will allow modifications to these structures to meet individual researcher's needs. The paper also summarizes the tool's capabilities and limitations, and provides information on the availability of the tool to researchers.
