Se buscaba con este sistema reducir los costos de cumplimiento e impedir el crecimiento de las emisiones de fuentes fijas al obligar a fuentes nuevas a compensar todas sus emisiones. El sistema básicamente no operó hasta 1997, año en que se introduce el gas natural en Santiago, combustible considerado limpio. En este contexto, este trabajo aborda las siguientes preguntas: ¿Qué impacto ha tenido la introducción del gas natural sobre la aplicabilidad de permisos transables para PM-10 y NOx? ¿Se siguen justificando las ganancias en eficiencia disminuyen a tal nivel que se puede considerar el uso de instrumentos de regulación directa? También se cuantifican las ganancias en eficiencia asociadas a aplicar un sistema de permisos ambientales (APS) que, a diferencia de un
