Abstract:

This analysis concerns the regulation of five chlorinated solvents employed ubiquitously in the economy. These chemicals have many known negative health and environmental effects. The economic model developed in this document, by simulating markets that use chlorinated solvents, can facilitate the design of more coordinated regulations. As such, this research should be of interest to officials in government and industry who make policies that control chlorinated or other hazardous solvents.
