Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Many countries with rapidly-growing economies face acute air pollution problems associated with combustion of solid fuels. As policymakers and researchers struggle to confront this challenge in China, they face confusing guidance from a plethora of new studies that attempt to estimate the relative merits of various air pollution control strategies. This seminar will introduce a proposed roadmap for prioritizing emissions-intensive sectors in China; and evaluating the air pollution, health, and climate costs and benefits of various energy efficiency, fuel-switching, and end-of-pipe emissions control strategies. The goal of this work is to assist policymakers in choosing air pollution controls that will advance specific health or environmental standards.
