Empirical results and experiences for the estimation of selected nitrogen abatement cost curves in Germany
Empirical results of the calculation of pollution abatement cost curves (ACCs) for different nitrogen compounds are presented for the German economy (1990 database). An evaluation is made of the extent to which the empirical work fits to the theoretical framework and the calculation procedure for ACCs described by Radermacher, Riege-Wcislo and Heinze elsewhere in this issue. The actual data situation for the calculation of ACCs in Germany is also described.
