Transport sector policies already contribute to moderating greenhouse gas emissions from road vehicles. They are increasingly designed to contribute to overall societal targets to mitigate climate change. While abatement costs in transport are relatively high, there are plausible arguments in favour of further abatement in this sector. The empirical basis to decide upon combinations of fuel economy standards and fuel taxes, however, remains weak. This Round Table investigates the effectiveness and costs of various mitigation options in road transport, and discusses the distribution of abatemen

Examines the effectiveness of glove bag control techniques used to contain the emission of asbestos fibers during the removal of asbestos-containing pipe lagging. The data were obtained during week-long surveys in each of four public school buildings, with the same work crew removing the asbestos-containing pipe lagging in all four schools. The efficacy of glove bags to contain asbestos fibers, thereby protecting abatement workers from exposure and preventing subsequent recontamination of the site, was evaluated; as well as aggressive vs. nonaggressive sampling methods for determining the effi

This report presents three case studies to illustrate the relationship between environmental policy and technological innovation. The case studies cover abatement technologies for wastewater effluent from pulp production, abatement of motor vehicle emissions, and development of renewable energy technologies. On the basis of patent data, the nature, extent, and causes of innovation in each of these areas have been explored. While a particular focus has been placed on the role of environmental policy in bringing about the innovation documented, it is recognised that other factors play a key role
