The EPA Clean Air Act proposal is aimed at new power plants and to meet the new EPA regulations for both air and carbon emissions
Online PR News – 12-June-2012 – Toronto,ON – The ThermoEnergy expects that the first carbon pollution standard for future power plants that were proposed by the Obama Administration’s EPA Carbon Regulations will impulse the adoption of technologies the eliminating of air pollution from coal-fired plants of ThermoEnergy.
The EPA Clean Air Act proposal is aimed at new power plants and to meet the new EPA regulations for both air and carbon emissions, clean combustion technology of ThermoEnergy can also be used to retrofit existing power plants.
In high pressure oxygen, coal burns more cleanly and efficiently than in normal air and this is what the company’s clean combustion technology do. Lloyd Westcord reports it would allow power plants to burn coal with almost zero carbon and air polluting emissions and the its process, carbon dioxide is easily captured in clean form for seclusion or beneficial re-use.
About 70 gigawatts of common coal-fired power capacity could be eliminated over the next 2 to 8 years with new EPA air emissions standards; representing $40 billion in annual power contracts Because of this, LW believes that the technology could bring a success in eliminating carbon emissions.
