Pollution credits

Monitored by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), US-based companies have a limit on the various types of pollution they can produce. If the actual pollution they produce is below this level, they have pollution credits they can trade. This process is known as emissions trading. An example of a US-based emissions market is SO2 allowances trading.
