Hidden Costs of Energy: Unpriced Consequences of Energy Production and Use
The studies that provide the concentration-response functions for the remaining welfare effects are listed in Table C-2. Because PM2.5 is a subset of PM10, APEEP avoids double counting of damages due to PM2.5 and PM10. Specifically, APEEP estimates mortality impacts associated with emissions of PM2.5, and the model measures chronic morbidity impacts of PM10. In reporting the morbidity damages due to emissions of PM10, APEEP nets out the mortality damages due to PM2.5. In effect, the damages for PM10 are expressed as PM10-PM2.5.
