Abstract: We investigate the convergence of pollution emission growth and the relationship between pollution growth and the economic growth both in theoretical and empirical level. On the basis of neo-classical growth theory, we demonstrate the prevention effect and scale effect of pollution emission. Using spatial econometric model to verify the two effects under perspective of space spillover, the empirical analysis based on the data of 285 Chinese cities from 2002-2012 shows that absolute convergence of pollution emission growth and scale effect exist. Pollution emission growth has obvious spatial spillover effect and is significantly positively related to the growth of surrounding areas. There is a significant strategic interaction effect between regional pollution emission growth. Pollution emission growth is closely related to the initial conditions. We argues that the pollution emission convergence and scale effect is an important mechanism for the coordinated development between economy and environment. Our research provides a new theoretical perspective for joint pollution abatement between regions, the cooperation of economic development between regions based on marketization should become the dominant force in joint pollution abatement and regional economic coordination and cooperation can improve environmental quality.
