Many environmental damages are as a result of ingredients which come into lifestyles as undesired joint outputs within the construction of wanted items. even if an output is wanted or now not, notwithstanding, isn't an inherent estate of the substance itself yet is dependent upon the context of construction. This publication reviews the function of a possible ambivalence of joint outputs for the outline and research of dynamic economy-environment interactions and for the layout of effective environmental coverage. this can be performed in an interisciplinary method: tools and insights from thermodynamics, engineering sciences, economics and the method of economics are mixed so one can enhance an encompassing view at the advanced and multivarious phenomenon of ambivalent joint construction. through the use of the concept that of joint construction as a unifying framework for describing and examining the family members among human monetary task and the encircling ordinary setting this publication contributes to a severe and positive evaluation of the normal environmental fiscal procedure.

5 shows the origin of the sulfur which has been used in the production of sulfuric acid in the chemical industry in Germany 1991 (Strenge 1995; quoted after Faber et al. 1996a:502 with own calculations). All quantities of sulfur are calculated on the basis of S03. The first two lines of the table give the amount of sulfur which enters the production of sulfuric acid as an input provided by the metal producing industry. 5: Sources of sulfur for the production of sulfuric acid in the chemical industry in Germany 1991 (Strenge 1995; quoted after Faber et al.

Temporal structure of the S02/acid rain problem The temporal structure of the problem is characterized by the fact that it has a flow-pollution aspect as well as a stock-pollution aspect. The direct impacts arise from the flow of pollutants at one specific point in time, whereas the indirect impacts are caused by the accumulation of pollution over time to a stock of immissions (Klaassen 1996:186). The pollutants S02 and NO", only stay in the atmosphere for a relatively short time before they are either deposited directly on the earth's surface or washed out by rain.

In Germany (IW 1997:107). Data for 1975 and 1980 are the aggregated data for the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic, data for 1990 and 1994 are those for unified Germany. 3 shows the yearly emissions of S02 and NO", for Germany. Both S02- and NO",-emissions reached a peak in 1980. g. 60 % for S02 from 1980 until 1994, are due to the enactment of federal environmental regulation concerning sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions from fossil-fuel-fired power plants.
