New EPA Air Emission Regulations and High Coal Dependency to Drive FGD installations in the US

Pages: 7 Published: January 01, 2012 Report Code: GDPE0053VPT

The US federal government’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is imposing increasingly stringent restrictions on toxic pollutants emitted from thermal power plants. As the low cost and high availability of coal resources in the country mean generators will remain highly coal-dependent into the foreseeable future, generators will have to install emission control equipment such as FGD systems to comply with these regulations. Although initial installation costs are high, the nature of the new EPA regulations will mean generators have no choice but to fit their coal-fired units with this technology to generate power economically in the long run
