Based on the status of the air pollution in China, three basic assumptions are proposed. The China’s inter-provincial cooperative control of air pollution (ICCAP) model is established by the combination of national optimization model and allocation model of cooperation benefit. A case study for the pollutant SO2 control in China shows that the proposed model is superior to the current command-order regulation. Our proposed model not only solves the problem of conflicts over air pollution across regional boundaries but also efficiently utilizes the resources in the whole of China.

Key words: Air pollution, bubble policy, cooperative control, modified MCRS method.
