The Expert Group on Techno-economic Issues was established
by the Executive Body in 2001 to develop a techno-economic
database of information on control technologies for
air pollution abatement and their costs. The information
may be used both in the formulation of draft revisions
of technical annexes to existing Protocols, as well
as for input data to integrated assessment modelling.
The Expert Group is led by France, with technical
support provided by the Interprofessional Technical
Centre for Studies on Atmospheric Pollution (CITEPA)
and the French-German Institute for Environmental
Research (IFARE), in cooperation with the French Agency
for Environment and Energy Management (ADEME) and
the French Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development.
