  • Should coal plants cool it?

    With its high CO2 emissions and central place in the US (and global) energy infrastructure, ‘fixing’ coal is arguably at the center of a successful resolution to the climate challenge in the United States and the world. At present, coal is responsible not only for significant CO2 emissions, but also for environmental damages ranging from mountain top removal to mercury emissions. However, it ...

  • Coal & gas power plants - efficiency & cost

    Which of today's fossil fuel-fired power plants have highest efficiencies and lowest emissions? And how much do they cost? These are some of the questions answered in IEA's recently released publication Fossil Fuel-Fired Power Generation - Case Studies of Recently Constructed Coal- and Gas-Fired Power Plants. But the authors' case studies covering nine selected facilities in Europe, Asia and ...

  • Large coal power plant water purification

    South Africa’s leading power provider, Eskom, is to use GE’s water and wastewater technology for the Kusile Power Plant, which, once fully operational, is expected to be one of the world’s largest coal-fired power plants. South Africa, at times known for often facing drought conditions, has limited freshwater supply, and GE’s technology will provide maximum water reuse for ...

  • 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 ...
