The various technological options for reducing emissions of NO, from stationary sources (powerplants) and mobile sources (four-stroke gasoline engines, light and heavy-duty diesel engines) are reviewed. A framework for developing the cost estimates of these options, based upon the free exchange of control technology in Europe, is developed. Both technology-specific and country-specific parameters are used. The cost estimates for various options applied to the different stationary and mobile sources in each country can be ranked in order of cost-effectiveness to generate National Cost Curves for NO, control in each country. These cost curves can then be used by the IIASA Regional Acidification Information and Simulation (RAINS) model to estimate the costs of various scenarios including the currently committed emission reductions and the application of best available technology. In the future, they will also be used to develop cost-optimal emission control strategies for nitrogen oxides in Europe.
