New Report Reveals Severe Groundwater Contamination at Illinois Coal-fired Power Plants. Millions of tons of coal ash, generated by the State's coal-fired power plants, has been stored in primarily unlined ponds and landfills near the plants for decades.
The plant is one of two in the region that will likely close in the coming years as market forces drive older, less efficient coal-fired power plants into retirement.
Financing New Coal-Fired Power Plants Guidance Note 2011 Coal is likely to be part of the energy mix for the foreseeable future. Therefore, to limit dangerous climate change, coal-fired power generation needs to be substantially decarbonised by 2050. Deployment of the best available technologies for coal-fired power plants (CFPPs)
Most of the world is turning its back on burning coal to produce electricity, but not Japan. The nation has fired up at least eight new coal power plants in the past 2 years and has plans for an
