    Abstract

    The cement industry constitutes a major source of air pollution and its environmental impacts have historically raised considerable public concern. This paper presents a health-based economic assessment of reducing particulate and sulfate emissions from a cement industrial complex. The economic valuation of the potential decrease in mortality and morbidity rates due to emissions reduction was conducted using a human capital approach and a cost of illness approach, respectively.
