A Review on Pollutants from Coal Based Power Sector
Pollutants management techniques in thermal power station could be a key issue to contemplate once analyzing environmental deterioration. The release of harmful pollutants from warm power plants into water bodies as well as our surrounding atmosphere would bring about unsafe effects on the environmental life. This chapter gives an overview of various types of emitted pollutants from various fuel base based power plant and their measurement and control techniques, both past and present using various approaches. Various opportunities in power sector along with key challenges and issues related to climate change mitigation in the power sector would be discussed. In this chapter, some of the good correlation with their conclude remarks have been discussed. Stack Height for Small Boilers with emission limits as suggested by Central Pollution Control Board have also been discussed. Different theories and application for measurements and control of such hazards pollutants such as CO2, SO2, NO2 and mercury have been presented. This chapter will include the some of the new emerging areas for thermal pollution control. The undesirable outputs of various fuel base thermal power plants not only affect the environmental laws but also have negative impacts on the water quality and ecological life. At the end, some of the good models with solutions and recommendations will be presented.
