Methyl bromide has been named as an ozone depleting chemical and there is a risk that it maybe banned in the near future.This paper describes an economic evaluation of an ACIAR-funded project which is proposingto find technologies to replace methyl bromide in quarantine fumigation of timber . The paperuses the concepts of consumer and producer surplus to estimate the net welfare changesassociated with the replacement of methyl bromide in the fumigation of timber for export.The evaluation includes the following impacts of a technology to replace methyl bromide:• the human health impacts due to a reduction in the incidence of UVB radiation inducedmedical conditions;~ the impact on the cost of quarantine treatment of timber in the countries collaboratingin the research project; and• the impacts on the world price of processed timber products and the trade dependentprice spillovers to other countries and regions in the world.The paper estimates the global welfare human health benefits of, and the internal rate of returnon research to find a replacement of methyl bromide with a non-ozone depleting technology.
