- Coal-fired power plants and pollutant emissions
2. Coal-fired power plants emission standards
3. Key technologies for ultra-low emission Coal-fired power plants
4. Cases of ultra-low emission Coal-fired power plants
5. Fine particles characteristics of ultra-low emission Coal-fired power plants
6. Mercury characteristics of ultra-low emission Coal-fired power plants
7. Economics of ultra-low emission Coal-fired power plants
Advances in Ultra-low Emission Control Technologies for Coal-Fired Power Plants discusses the emissions standards of dust, SO2, NOx and mercury pollution, also presenting the key technologies available to control emissions in coal-fired power plants. The practical effects of ultra-low emissions projects included help the reader understand related implications in plants. Emphasis is placed on 300MW subcritical, 600MW subcritical, 660MW supercritical and 1000MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired units. The influence of different pollutant control units, such as wet electrostatic precipitator, desulfurization equipment and the electrostatic precipitator are also analyzed, and the pollutant levels before and after retrofitted ultra-low emissions are compared throughout.
- Provides a unique analysis of advanced technologies, such as dust-removal, desulfurization and denitrification used for ultra-low emissions in coal-fired power plants
- Introduces emission standards for dust, SO2, NOx and Mercury pollution from coal-fired power plants in China, the US and Europe
- Provides solutions to reducing emissions based on technological advances in China
- Analyzes the environmental and economic effects of these technologies
