In the paper, the achievements obtained from carrying out the policy of environmental protection price for promoting air pollution control in coal-fired power plants in China during more than a decade were summarized. Based on the situation of current electricity market reform, the role and effectiveness of environmental protection price for controlling the normal air pollutants, such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and dust in China's coal-fired power generation plants, were investigated, including the price structure of electricity environmental protection for coal-fired power generation enterprises in different regions, generating units, and power demands. The policy suggestions were proposed, namely, the reform of electricity environmental protection price would be carried out gradually, the relationship between electricity environmental protection price policy and other environmental protection policies would be matched under the relative overcapacity condition, and the environmental protection price regulation would be integrated into other environmental policies.

A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.
Removal of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS or contaminants for the general protection of the environment. This is accomplished by various chemical, biological, and bulk movement methods, in conjunction with ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING.
Absolute, comparative, or differential costs pertaining to services, institutions, resources, etc., or the analysis and study of these costs.
The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.
A natural fuel formed by partial decomposition of vegetable matter under certain environmental conditions.
