The objectives of this review are to assess the methods used in a report undertaken to inform a cost-benefit analysis of additional pollution controls carried out for the South African power utility, Eskom, and to consider the reliability of the conclusions reached.

Large differences have been noted in quantified estimates of the health impacts associated with air pollution emissions from Eskom’s fleet of coal-fired power stations in South Africa: a critical question is thus whether these differences are associated with justifiable differences in opinion regarding available science or not.
