Improving the Efficiency of Coal-Fired Power Plants: Issues and Potential Benefits

Series: Pollution Science, Technology and Abatement
BISAC: SCI024000

Coal has long been the major fossil fuel used to produce electricity. However, coal-fired electric power plants are one of the largest sources of air pollution in the United States, with greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the burning of fossil fuels believed to be the major contributor to global climate change.

Regulations under development at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would impose new requirements on fossil-fueled (mostly coal-fired) power plants (CFPPs) to control GHG emissions. This book focuses on efficiency improvements to power plants, and discusses retrofits, technologies, and other modifications to facility operations which offer the potential to improve power plant efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
