IMPLICATIONS OF AIR POLLUTION FOR THE SEPARATION AND MIXTURE OF LAND USES.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The paper deals with the implications of air pollution on the location of land uses which differ with regard to pollutant emission rate and sensitivity to pollution. Assuming that there are only two sites with an unlimited supply of land it is shown that no segregation of activities will result in market equilibrium. If land constraints are effective, there is an incentive for the activity with the lower emission rate per acre to initiate a local policy which excludes the other activity. However, if such a policy is not identical with the market equilibrium, it is inferior in terms of total pollution costs.
