  • Air Pollution Control Second Only To Fuel In Cost Of Operating Coal-fired Power Plant

    Operators of coal-fired power plants are making critical decisions relative to air pollution control which will greatly effect their competitive position and/or the costs for rate payers. In the 1970s a coal-fired plant could spend 2-3 mills/kWh for owning and operating an electrostatic precipitator and opacity monitor. Today the costs for particulate, SO2, NOx and toxic control can be more ...
