Abstract: 

This 1993 study estimates total U.S. imports, exports, and trade balances for environmental protection (EP) equipment between 1980-1991. It concludes that although the United States is a major exporter of EP equipment, trade in EP equipment constitutes a relatively small percentage of total U.S. trade.
