Copper is one of the most important industrial metals and in total annual production in the world is in third place, behind iron and aluminum. Despite everything positive which comes from production and usage of copper, its production follows air pollution with negative effects to the environment, and above all, to human health, and then infrastructure, farmland and crops, waterways and ecosystems. As a result of such contamination, there are negative effects of environmental pollution which is the main subject of research in this dissertation. The subject of this doctoral dissertation is an analysis of the non-market solutions of environmental externalities of the copper production in the Republic Serbia, with a clear focus on the existence and the very harmful influence of negative external effects on the environment and the human health in this area. The main objective is to internalize environmental externalities through the use of non-market solutions, which will help in achieving... not only social, economic, but also very important environmental goals. The complementarity of those goals is a necessity towards achieving sustainable development not only in the copper production, but also in the survival of the population in this area. The application of scientifically based methodology of quantification external costs will help in analyzing results based on the existing (old) manufacturing technology and the principles of functioning of the new technology, which means less pollution. Comparative analysis of the obtained results clearly confirms the necessity of overview of the total social costs of copper production. Even though the procedure of estimating external effects is a very complex and complicated due to multiple effects on all environmental factors, the dissertation proposes solutions, or rather the suitable methodology, whose application will help in achieving the economic and environmental objectives.
