The Power Plant Toxics Measurements Database: Chemical Composition Information for the Electric Power Industry
For decades, power companies and other stakeholders have measured the toxic chemical content of the wastes from fossil-fuel power plants, but staff turnover can lead to loss of institutional memory regarding these measurements. To provide access to these data, EPRI created and maintains the Power Plant Toxics Measurements Database, an online resource with more than […]
Power plants must report ammonia releases to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) if they exceed limits under the EPA’s Toxics Release Inventory program. This report provides a method for predicting ammonia releases from power plants during operation of nitrogen oxide reduction control equipment, flue gas conditioning, boiler water treatment, and boiler cleaning.
The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxics Release Inventory program requires electric utilities to estimate and report annual emissions of 682 chemicals and chemical categories, including sulfuric acid aerosols. This report provides a method for predicting the sulfuric acid produced during fuel combustion, removed by air pollution control equipment or flue gas treatment, and released […]
