Combination of modern technologies to be used to eliminate power plant emissions

technologies and emission control

In environmental standards for the control of emissions from power plants developed various technologies for the control of pollutants. These technologies have evolved with the development of regulations and the discovery of an increasing number of pollutants. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has loosened some rules regarding coal residues and wastewater from power plants, which […]

Decommission of Coal Power Plants is become critical due to Removing Asbestos and other Regulated Materials

old coal power plants

The US coal industry is facing fierce competition from renewable energy and natural gas. Statistics will only increase awareness of the industry’s decline. For example, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that U.S. Electric Power has phased out more than 546 coal-fired units, approximately 102 GW, between 2010 and the first quarter of 2019, and […]
