Sector-based PM2.5 Benefit Per Ton Estimates
The tables below report the benefit per ton values appearing in Characterizing the PM2.5-related health benefits of emission reductions for 17 industrial, area and mobile emission sectors across the U.S. Exit(Fann, Baker and Fulcher 2012) updated to reflect more current demographic, health and economic input parameters. All estimates are in 2015 dollars, reflect the use of a 3% discount rate, and are based on the Krewski et al. (2009) PM2.5 mortality risk estimate. The 2016 estimates are based on 2016 emissions and use population, baseline mortality incidence rate, and income growth projections for 2016. The 2030 estimates are based on 2030 projected emissions and use baseline mortality incidence rate projections for 2030. The 2030 estimates use population and income growth projections for 2026, which is the latest projected year available.
The methodology is discussed more completely in the Technical Support Document Estimating the Benefit per Ton of Reducing PM2.5 Precursors from 17 Sectors, which includes values for 2016, 2020, 2025, and 2030.
