  • Following the fuel: How portable biomass energy generation may help rural communities

    The forests that surround many of California’s mountain communities tend to have an abundance of woody biomass and a pressing need for thinning to reduce fire danger. Revenue from selling forest residues to biomass power plants could help to support fuel reduction activities, but in many cases the nearest plant is so far away that hauling costs are prohibitive. The remoteness of such ...

  • Economic evaluation for air pollution control technologies selection in power plants processes

    Air quality legislation is entering a transformation phase, shifting the concept of atmospheric emission control towards pollution prevention and emission minimization through a more integrated approach. This transformation, along with public pressure and increased foreign trade, is providing industries with incentives to consider their effect on the environment and to take action where required. ...

  • `Air Permitting for a New Coal-Fired Power Plant,` published in Power magazine, November

    Prevention Of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Construction of any new source, including a greenfield power plant, is subject to New Source Review (NSR). If the source is located in an attainment area, it will also trigger Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting, as required by the Clean Air Act (CAA) for major stationary sources of air pollution in attainment areas. A major ...

  • Air pollution modelling of the Calabrian pine forests withered by the Yatagan thermal power plant, Turkey

    The emissions from the chimney of the Yatagan thermal power plant have caused a 3050-hectare forest to wither. Such air pollutants as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and fly ash are carried towards the Bencikdagi Calabrian pine forests on the prevailing north-east winds. To study these effects, the Q-Basic computer program developed for the Gaussian puff model was used with meteorological data ...
