Abstract

This chapter presents the issue of pollution from stationary sources and introduces available mitigation options. It focuses on both direct and indirect control mechanisms and indicates the benefits and shortcomings of each option. The chapter elaborates on the cap-and-trade programme used in the US for mitigation of acid rains and also introduces the problems related to indoor air pollution.
