Emission Trading Feasibility Study
The feasibility study was a Canada-United States national-level project to jointly explore the feasibility of cross-border trading of capped emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulphur dioxide (SO2). The feasibility study was conducted under the Canada-U.S. Air Quality Agreement the report is provided below.
A significant accomplishment of the feasibility study is the creation of an analytical tool through which to explore the impact of NOx and SO2 cap and trading within the electricity sector.
