Estimates were made of the costs of controlling and reducing the emissions of selected pollutants from mobile sources within the Nation and pollutants from 23 stationary sources within 298 metropolitan areas. Under the assumed implementation plan, these estimated costs are those that will be incurred during the period of Fiscal Year 1971 through Fiscal Year 1976. In addition, an extended analysis was made to determine the economic impact of control costs on each industrial source or group of industrial sources studied.Also, the aggregate effects of the impact of individual industries upon buyer industries and consumer prices are determined. The pollutants from mobile sources selected for analysis are hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and particulates. The six pollutants for which control cost estimates are made for stationary sources are particulates, sulfur oxides, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, fluorides, and lead. Emission standards applied are considered stringent in comparison with many currently in use throughout the Nation. (Author)
