Optimal emission control strategies for photochemical smog


A study of certain aspects of the selection of reactive hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emission reductions for photochemical oxidant abatement is carried out. Optimal emission control paths are defined as those minimizing a total cost function consisting of control cost and ozone dosage contributions. Los Angeles County ozone air quality and control cost data are used to formulate an optimal emission reduction path. The analysis is presented primarily to provide insight into the factors involved in designing oxidant control strategies.
