ABSTRACT
The article reports on the anticipated growth of air pollution control systems by 2015 in the U.S. The McIlvaine Co. stresses that air pollution control equipment is expected to grow by $80 billion. It was inferred that the implementation of carbon tax to factories and power plants which emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere contribute towards the rise in demand for air pollution equipment. The author discusses the various benefits offered by carbon tax towards the pollution industry. He states that the carbon tax will encourage business enterprises to purchase technologies in compliance to the carbon tax.
