The application of the RAINS model for Greece

0
In order to comply in 2010 with the emission ceilings proposed by European commission under the convention on transboundary air pollution, Greece has to develop and implement a cohesive strategy affecting all the sectors of the economy. The RAINS model was used for the evaluation of the environmental and economic impacts arising from the use of a number of control technologies under alternative energy scenarios. To this purpose a number of modifications regarding the input databases of RAINS were made. The analysis clearly reveals that the reduction of SO2 emissions can be achieved in a lower cost compared to the reduction of NOx emissions. Moreover, the complementarity of CO2 abatement policies and the SO2/NOx abatement policies is also accented.
