ADVANCED COAL-BURNING POWER PLANT TECHNOLOGY

Traditional coal-fired power plant suffers from two primary drawbacks:

  • overall thermal efficiency limited
  • major source of pollution

There are strategies to reduce levels of pollution immediately in traditional plants.

However, very little can be done to raise its efficiency, being limited by thermodynamic constraints.

Efficiency of 49-50% feasible within 20 years.
