  • Putting a price on water quality

    One way to clean-up water pollution is to award 'credits' to facilities that reduce their emissions. These credits can then be traded with other facilities to compensate for pollution outputs. This controls overall pollutions levels, while creating an economic incentive to reduce emissions. Research using models that simulate water quality has been used to establish the value of these credits and ...
