Marginal Abatement Cost Curve (MACC) Tool

An abatement cost, is the cost associated with reducing environmental negatives such as pollution. Marginal costs allows one to measure the economic cost of an additional unit. So, marginal abatement cost, in general, measures the cost of reducing one more unit of pollution. The marginal abatement cost curve shows the marginal cost of additional reductions in pollution.
