Air Pollution: Air Quality and Permitting of New Coal-Burning, Electricity-Generating Units in Central Texas
John Stephenson (au)
Burning coal generates 50% of U.S. electricity and produces air pollution that can pose a threat to human health and ecosystems. The increasing demand for electricity in Texas has led to proposals for 33 new coal-burning, electricity-generating units. The EPA establishes national ambient air quality standards for 6 pollutants to protect public health: carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur oxides, ozone, particulate matter, and lead. This report provides info. on: (1) the current status of permitting coal-burning, electricity-generating units in Central Texas (CT); (2) the process EPA and Texas use to review permit applications for proposed new major sources of air pollution; and (3) what is known about air quality and respiratory health in CT.
