How a Power Plant Works
A coal-fired power plant can be broken into two functional sections. The front section generates electricity while the back section serves to scrub the emissions that are a result of burning coal.
The following example of a coal-fired power plant is based upon a plant burning sub-bituminous coal utilizing NOx controls, a Spray Dryer Absorber (SDA) for SOx control and a baghouse for particulate control.
