An Input-Output Pollution Control Model and Product Selection

Aniekan Ebiefung, Idongesit Isaac

Abstract


An input-output pollution control model is provided. It describes the flow of pollutants through all sectors of the economy. It allows each sector to evaluate the level of pollutants generated by different manufacturing processes simultaneously, and to select and produce a product that emits pollutants within some permissible limits. For a given amount of pollutants emitted by a sector, a method for computing the corresponding number of items to be produced by that sector is provided.
