Clean Air Act: Preliminary Observations on the Effectiveness and Costs of Mercury Control Technologies at Coal-Fired Power Plants: Congressional Testimony
John B. Stephenson (au)
The 491 U.S. coal-fired power plants (CFPP) are the largest unregulated industrial source of mercury emissions nationwide -- a toxic element that poses health threats, incl. neurological disorders in children. In 2000, the EPA determined that mercury emissions from these sources should be regulated. The Dept. of Energy reported that systems that inject sorbents -- powdery substances to which mercury binds -- into the exhaust from boilers of CFPP were ready for deployment. This testimony provides data on: (1) reductions achieved by mercury control technol. and the extent of their use at CFPP; (2) the cost of mercury control technol. in use at these plants; and (3) key issues EPA faces in regulating mercury emissions from CFPP.
