Non-Parametric Modelling of CO
Dutch glasshouse firms are facing the introduction of a system of tradable CO 2 emission quotas. This paper employs a non-parametric method for modelling tradable CO 2 emissions of Dutch glasshouse firms. The method is capable of generating shifts in CO 2 emissions across the sample of firms. Moreover, changes in volumes of outputs produced and inputs used are computed. Results show that firms using a conventional heating technology will be net purchasers of CO 2 emissions, whereas firms using more advanced heating technologies will sell part of their emission quota.
