Controlled trading allows industry and individuals to profit from pollution control by allowing plants to decrease emissions below required levels and obtain state-approved credit for the reduction. They can then use these emission reduction credits (ERCs) themselves or sell to other firms. The Brokers' Handbook includes: a description of EPA's Controlled Trading Program; an examination of the potential benefits available to firms contemplating ERC transactions and exploration of the many services ERC brokers could perform; a case study of one California firm's brokering experience; an examination of how brokers can determine supply and demand for ERCs and for brokers in a given area; a discussion of options trading in ERCs; and an examination of tax considerations related to the financing, creation, banking, and use of ERCs.
