2005) and obtained NOx and PM emissions intensities for the following categories: fuel type, vehicle type, years in which vehicles met the emissions standards, and speed per kilometer. Using Eqs. 9), we estimated the effect of emissions reduction. We used an average emissions intensity of 20 km per hour because it is approximately the average vehicle speed in Tokyo. 6 illustrates changes in the volume of NOx and PM emissions under the VTR (Eq. 8)) and absent the VTR (Eq. 7)). By 2024, the total volume of NOx (PM) emission will be 1,495,496 tons (87,624 tons) without the VTR and 1,212,319 tons (32,655 tons) with the VTR.

7 illustrates the MAC of vehicles that were initially registered in 1990. 92 yen for passenger vehicles (both initially registered in 1990). The finding that the abatement cost is lower for standard trucks and higher for passenger vehicles suggests that greater NOx reduction from standard trucks and less NOx reduction from passenger vehicles are desirable. That is, the efficiency of the VTR improves by (1) accelerating the terminal years for standard trucks, (2) delaying the terminal years for passenger vehicles, or (3) adopting both strategies.

Thus, the second term represents emissions from newer vehicles. Here, we assumed that mileage per vehicle (D) is constant over time after 2003. 3 Emissions with the VTR We then estimated emissions with the VTR. To comply with the VTR, the owner of a vehicle either replaces the vehicle or simply disposes of it. 16 Thus, we assumed that regulated vehicles are abandoned at a constant rate. Emissions under the VTR, Et;p w;r , are defined in the following set of equations. 3 for additional details. drtr is the mileage adjustment rate per vehicle in year t.
