AIChE & A&WMA Web Forum: Electricity and the Environment: Existing U.S. Coal-Fired Generation and Future Technologies
- Type: Archived Webinar
- Level: Intermediate
- Duration: 1.5 hours
- PDHs: 1.50
Electricity generated by fossil fuel is a generally stable and low-cost commodity. Globally, electricity is being utilized in more areas of life than ever before, and the environmental impact of its generation is minimized through various technologies. This web forum reviews those technologies for both the researcher as well as the practicing engineer, including generation, non-catalytic and catalytic reduction of NOx, electrostatic precipitation, fabric filtration, desulfurization and acid gas control, and mercury control. Many of these technologies are inter-related, and the focus is on the system as whole. While these unit operations are sufficient for existing electricity generation, future technology development is also be discussed.
