What Is the Air Pollution Cost Control Manual?

The Air Pollution Cost Control Manual is a guide produced by US EPA to help environmental engineers estimate the costs of controlling air pollution from a particular source. US EPA uses the manual to estimate the financial impact that new Clean Air Act and other air pollution rules may have on US facilities.
