This paper calculates the optimal tax of the emission of polluting agents in oligopolistic possess and under conditions of the reciprocal dumping, in which the firms count on the appropriate technology to decrease the pollution and can decide the amount of emissions generated. In this model the optimal tax mainly depends on the amount of the marginal disutility to pollute, as well as the abatement cost./ En este trabajo se calcula el impuesto óptimo a la emisión de contaminantes en competencia oligopolística y en condiciones de dumping recíproco, en el que las empresas cuentan con la tecnología adecuada para disminuir la contaminación y poder decidir la cantidad de emisiones generadas. En este modelo, el impuesto óptimo depende principalmente de la cantidad de la desutilidad marginal de contaminar, además del costo de abatimiento.
