Emission Controls and Monitoring
Allowance trading allows sources in cap and trade programs to adopt the most cost-effective strategy to reduce emissions. To meet the market-based Acid Rain Program (ARP) and Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) emission reduction targets, some sources opted to install control technologies. A wide set of controls is available to help reduce emissions. The tracking and reporting of accurate and consistent emissions monitoring data is necessary to ensure program compliance and is achieved through the use of continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS).
