  • EPA proposes air permit for Capitol Power Plant

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking public comment on a proposed permit for the Capitol Power Plant in Washington, D.C. that would provide the facility with the flexibility to begin using more-efficient natural gas rather than coal as its main source of energy. The Capitol Power Plant was built in the early 1900’s and provides steam for heat and chilled water for cooling to ...

  • Air Pollution Control for Coal-Fired Power Plants

    This is an update by the same author, a Ph.D. chemical engineer, of a BCC Research report of the same name published in March 2009. In the three-plus years since then there has been a lot of talk, political posturing and research, but not much has actually happened, either in new technology or major new business thrusts, in the coal-fired power plant industry regarding its actions to control air ...


  • 3900 Power Plant Air Pollution Projects Are In Planning Or Construction

  • High potential to cut air pollution from Europe`s power plants

    Emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) from large combustion plants (LCP) could have been considerably lower in 2004, a report presented today by the European Environment Agency says. Power plants burning coal, oil and/or gas are significant contributors to European emissions of NOx and SO2 — two important acidifying pollutants. Improving the environmental performance of ...

  • St. Croix Fossil Fuel Power Plant to Comply with Clean Air Act

    Under a legal agreement announced today by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Justice, the Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (VIWAPA) will come into compliance with air pollution control requirements in the federal Clean Air Act at its Estate Richmond Generating Facility on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. These air pollution controls will reduce emissions of ...

  • EPA to issue strict rules for US power plant air toxics

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has agreed to adopt rules reducing toxic air pollution from the nation’s coal- and oil-burning power plants by November 2011, according to a settlement agreement reached in a federal lawsuit brought against the Agency by a coalition of public health and environmental groups. The settlement has been lodged in the United States District Court for the ...

  • EPA mercury and air toxics rules for power plants: 20+ years in the making

    As the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency prepares to release new Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS), some people may be wondering about the history and timeline for these standards. One Senator recently claimed that EPA is “charging ahead” with them. These standards, however, have been in development for over ...

  • China Is The World Leader In Power Plant Air Pollution Projects

    China is currently undertaking a much bigger power plant air quality improvement program than any other country in the world.  China presently has more scrubber projects.  It is second only to the U.S. in terms of NOx control projects and it is the world’s leading supplier and purchaser of electrostatic precipitators for dust control.  This rate of activity is being tracked plant ...

  • US Air Force switches on largest solar power plant

    North America's largest solar photovoltaic system is now up and generating power at Nellis Air Force Base in the sunny desert of southern Nevada. The $100 million solar power plant at Nellis will supply about 25 percent of the total power used at the base, where 12,000 people live and work. The 14 megawatt photovoltaic array will generate more than 30 million kilowatt-hours of electricity ...

  • Radical New Approach to Making Power Plant Air Quality Decisions

    The potential for using the Internet and teleconferences in making complex power plant air quality decisions has been largely untapped. However, starting July 6 when McIlvaine Company combines its online decision trees with its new “Hot Topic Hour” discussions, full use of these resources will be achieved. Each week participants will spend an hour both viewing branches of decision trees ...
