Developing marginal monetised air quality impacts of carbon abatement opportunities identified in the updated Marginal Abatement Cost (MAC) curve - EP0210

Description
This project will develop monetised costs associated with an increased uptake of the abatement opportunities identified in the MAC model for particulate matter (PM), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and Ammonia (NH3).

The project work plan will be split into 7 tasks, with the objective of developing an approach to the estimation and use of marginal air quality damage costs for GHG abatement measures.
