The report attempts to reveal the alternatives available to government and to private industry as they cope with the conflict of economic growth and pollution abatement. In relating the multifaceted approaches to the problem, the report has two purposes: To minimize the conflict between economic growth and pollution abatement by examining opportunities which are often overlooked; To create an information system which clearly identifies the empirical possibilities available within the pollution abatement strategies considered. This approach, which is called, Ecosystem of Machines Information System (EMIS), suggests a way of determining the minimum data needed by integrating data sets with abatement strategy; a way to maximize useful information by collecting data in the context of its use, and a systematic way to judge alternative approaches for particular industries in a decentralized economy. Presented is the design for the systematic identification of potential matches of industries, listing the basic computer routines. A sample data base is indicated and processed through the alternative strategies for abatement. The present practices of abatement policy are investigated and opportunities through the EMIS method are suggested. Twelve reasons why this approach will not work and 12 requirements which are raised by these objectives. (Author)
