Validation Case Study GDANSK

Demonstration prototype Release R0.2 December 1996

The result of the source control optimization is computed by minimizing a spatially distributed, non-linear environmental objective function under budget constraints. The economic evaluation consider a set of alternative control technologies for each source, each described in terms of investment and ORM costs. A time horizon and discount rate are used to calculate net present value (NPV) for each alternative as the basis for evaluation. Alternatives include control technologies such as end-of-stack measures, but also changes in production technologies, fuel and burner technology, reduction of production level, and even plant closures.
