  • 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 ...


  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • An industry first: SNC-Lavalin successfully integrates a commercial post-combustion CCUS system into a coal-fired power plant

    SaskPower recently set a precedent when it fired up a commercial-grade carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) system at its Boundary Dam power plant in Saskatchewan. It’s the first time that a CCUS system of this size has ever been retrofitted into a coal-fired plant anywhere in the world. SNC-Lavalin was proud to provide complete EPC and training services for the project’s ...
