The report presents cost and economic impact information needed to undertake a complete benefits/cost analysis of setting alternative carbon monoxide NAAQS. Four alternative 8-hour NAAQS were analyzed: 9 ppm, one observed exceedance, and 9,12,15 ppm one expected exceedance of daily maxima. The cost estimates are for both total societal and industrial sector control technology installation and operation. These include capital changes, annualized capital expenditures, and annual operating and maintenance/repair costs. Mobile source expenditures are analyzed separately from stationary source control costs. The economic impact analysis includes data on industry's ability to bear the capital expense and the inflationary and competitive impacts of incurring the control costs. Three time periods of analysis are used: 1987, 1990, and 1995.
