Modelling optimal nitrogen oxides abatement in Europe. MPRA Paper 33132, University Library of Munich, Germany (1997).

This study uses new abatement cost curves for nitrogen oxides relying on disaggregated source data to optimise NOX abatement in a European framework. Linear and non-linear damage cost functions are assumed for NOX emissions and their impacts on the empirical results are explored for first time. The paper also provides numerical estimates of the potential benefits from co-operation.
