About this book

John Scott develops, describes and uses primary data about US industrial firms' research and development (R&D) investments to create innovative products and processes that provide goods and services without the by-product of pollution. New knowledge about environmental R&D is provided by original surveys of industry from 1993 and 2001. The R&D and other firm data are juxtaposed with US Census industry data and with US Environmental Protection Agency data about industrial toxic releases. This book presents hypothesis tests that provide evidence supporting the use of public policies described in the book to stimulate industry to use its creative powers to improve environmental performance.


A lesson from history; hazardous industrial chemicals; a survey of industry; the industrial R&D response; a theoretical model; the hypothesis tests; cooperative R&D; environmental R&D, emissions and policy.
