  • SAGA: a decision support system for air pollution management around a coal-fired power plant

    Air quality models are currently feasible approaches to prevent air pollution episodes. From one of the first source-oriented modelling approaches for air pollution forecasting (Souto et al., 1994, 1996, 1998), a new decision support system for air quality management, SAGA, was developed to provide support to As Pontes Power Plant (APPP) staff. SAGA can provide air pollution forecasts and manage ...

  • Power plants use oil skimmers to prevent contamination from spills

    Most hydroelectric plants designed in the 1960s were built with a station drainage sump that collects all drainage from the plant. As designed, float switches activate sump pumps that discharge liquids directly into the tailrace. The system cannot distinguish between types of liquids, so in the event of an oil leak, oil in the sump could be released into the tailrace. Modern ...
