Abstract CC>2 reduction is a primary concern for both developed and developing countries in order to adhere to the guidelines of the Framework Convention on Climate Change. Input-output modeling is used to assess the linkage effects of CO% emission and energy consumption of the steel industry in Taiwan. Also, we calculate the amount of CO: emission from a proposed new steel plant project, "Yeah-Long", in Taiwan, and find that the new plant will emit over 13 million tons CO: per year, which is almost 57% of total CO: emitted from all steel industries of Taiwan in 1997. This study also concludes that the steel industry generally has ve
