  • Inhalation Health Risk Assessment of Air Toxic Emissions from Large Combustion Turbine Power Projects

    Power generation from combustion turbine projects continues to grow throughout the world. With natural gas as the most common primary fuel, and low-sulfur #2 oil as the backup fuel, combustion turbines are among the cleanest forms of fossil power generation. This paper discusses the results of a preliminary inhalation health risk assessment of air toxic emissions from four power plant ...

  • A new way to measure emissions from China’s Coal-Fired Power Plants

    To prevent the most severe impacts of climate change, it is essential to limit fossil fuel use—particularly coal use in power production. The share of coal in global energy consumption is increasing, with ...

  • Improving Fuel Efficiency - Fred Weber, Inc. Realizes Significant Fuel Savings Using Combustion Catalyst Systems

    To see and hear the two Caterpillar 988Fs loading the crusher at Fred Weber's North Stone Quarry in Maryland Heights, Mo., one might think they are just like any other large wheel loaders working on any other quarry or construction job site in the Midwest. They look, sound and run like any well-maintained 988Fs would as they move quickly between the piles and the plant, but these are different; ...

  • Advances in control of PM2.5 and PM2.5 precursors generated by the combustion of pulverised coal

    Particulate matter smaller than 2.5 mm in aerodynamic diametre (PM2.5) from coal-fired boilers is composed of directly emitted (primary) particles and particles formed from precursors (secondary particles). Technologies to reduce emissions of precursors to secondary PM2.5 emitted by coal-fired utility plants include wet and dry flue gas desulphurisation (FGD). Limestone forced ...

  • Overview of mercury control in coal-fired power plants

    During combustion, the mercury (Hg) in coal is volatilized and converted to elemental mercury (Hg0) vapor in the high temperature regions of coal-fired boilers. As the flue gas is cooled, a series of complex reactions begin to convert Hg0 to ionic mercury (Hg2+) compounds and/or Hg compounds (Hgp) that are in a solid-phase at flue gas cleaning temperatures or Hg that is adsorbed onto the surface ...

  • Methylmercury in mosquitoes around a large coal‐fired power plant in Central Ohio

    Emissions from coal‐fired power plants are the major anthropogenic source of mercury (Hg) in the environment. Because emitted Hg can be deposited near the source, concerns arise about the effects of coal‐burning facilities on levels of toxic methylmercury (MeHg) in biota near such sources. We investigated the potential impact of a large Hg‐emitting (450 kg in 2005) coal‐fired power station in ...

  • Vattenfall`s Cogeneration Power Plant Reuter West - Case Study

    The cogeneration power plant “Reuter West” was erected as a base load power plant in the vicinity of the existing “Reuter” plant. The two hard coal fired 300 MW units D and E were commissioned in 1987 and 1989. Today the cogeneration units supplying electricity and thermal energy are operated by Vattenfall Europe GmbH. The heart of each power plant is the boiler where the ...

  • Improving energy use efficiency in Nigeria's industrial sector: a case study of a beverage plant

    Industrial energy is a major component of the total energy use in a nation. However, energy is not without a cost in its production, availability, use and even its environmental impact on society. In addition, most of the energy resources are depletable, thereby necessitating their sustainable use through energy efficiency improvement programs. In this investigation, an attempt was made to study ...

  • Communication to the Council and the European Parliament on a Community Strategy to Combat Acidification

    On 12th March 1997, the European Commission adopted a proposal from the Environment Commissioner Ritt Bjerregaard on a European Union strategy to combat acidification. The strategy will, by 2010, reduce significantly the extent of the areas in the European Union where the tolerance of sensitive ecosystems to acidity is exceeded. Main elements of the strategy include establishment of national ...
