As part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Air Quality Maintenance Planning (AQMP) procedure, this study evaluates the economic costs associated with implementation of two strategies for attainment and short-term maintenance of particulate standards. Both strategies are proposed for application to the City of Worcester. They are as follows: (1) replacement of marginal burners with more energy efficient modern equipment; and (2) conversion of sources using residual oil to the use of lighter fuels and/or fuels of lower sulfur content. The analysis has included only the economic costs to owners of affected facilities. The study was prepared in order to subsequently coordinate the results with an air pollution control effectiveness analysis to be undertaken separately.
