  • Coal-Fired Power Plant Blocked in Iowa

    DES MOINES, Iowa, October 15, 2007 (ENS) - Opponents of a new coal-fired power plant proposed in Waterloo, including the Sierra Club and the Iowa Farmers Union, celebrated a victory Thursday when a state panel rejected the City of Waterloo's request to annex land for the plant. The City Development Board decided that the annexation of land owned by residents who oppose the annexation ...

  • Biomass Will Make Coal-fired Power Plants Greener

    The U.S. should follow the European lead and burn more biomass in coal-fired boilers. Big equivalent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions would be achieved according to the McIlvaine Company in its Power Plant Air Quality Decisions online system. In the U.K. one of the world’s largest coal-fired power plants, (Drax), announced recently that 10 percent of the fuel input will come from ...

  • Coal-fired Power Generators have lots of “Clean” opportunities

    In many Asian localities coal will be the only near term solution to create electricity, prosperity and health. In Japan, the U.S. and Europe coal will continue to provide much of the electricity for decades to come. Coal can be greener than any other form of generation. An example would be a system which uses 70% coal and 30% biomass and is producing CO2 which is injected to enhance oil ...

  • 7,000 Utility Coal-fired Power Plants Are Continuing to Upgrade and Replace

    The market to upgrade and replace components in the existing 7,000 coal-fired power plants is larger than the new equipment market for wind, solar, or gas turbines. The upgrades and replacements are tracked in the Utility Tracking System published by the McIlvaine Company. Many of the power plants in the U.S. are more than 40 years old but are expected to operate another 20 ...

  • Utilizing the Excess Coal-fired Boiler Talent in the U.S.

    The U.S. is not building new coal-fired power plants and will be shutting down nearly 70,000 MW of existing power plants. There is uncertainty regarding the remaining 190,000 MW depending on clean power regulations. The result of this shrinkage is a large excess of coal-fired boiler talent in the country. Two options for beneficial use are to channel this talent into: Other types of power ...
