Under an emissions cap and trade program, each allowance entitles the holder to emit some amount of gas such as carbon. Sources that emit less than their emissions cap can sell allowances to those sources needing to purchase additional allowances to comply with the cap. Emission sources can then decide whether to control emissions through control technology or through allowance surrender to meet compliance.
