CC-88 targets China’s oldest power plants for energy efficiency and pollution control

China made a “huge” move to convert it’s developing nation to a world leading economy. The “huge” move made was bringing electricity to the 100% of it’s 1.3 billion people. Now consumerism is taking hold of China’s 1.3 billion inhabitants. 1.3 people are buying rice cookers, refrigerators, TVs and Computers.
China’s energy needs are at an all time high and continue to surge forward as China ’s economy grows. With stronger economic growth comes more electricity demand. As demand for electricity grows, so does the demand for coal and the need to conserve it. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), China imported over 100 million tons of coal in 2009. China became a net importer of coal.
Roughly 80% of China’s electricity is coal-fired power plants. This year power-generating capacity will increase another 10%.

A significant source of air pollution in China is use of relatively low-quality raw coal. A lot of the coal burned has high sulfur content (more than 5%). Very few power plants are retrofitted with flue gas desulfurization (FGD) equipment in China because of its high cost and when it is installed it is often left off due to high costs of operation.
There is far less air monitoring in China’s environmental regulatory system. Many of the plants built before 1980 have relatively low smokestacks and are located near cities, contributing
greatly to local air pollution.
Although improvements in air quality have been achieved, ambient concentrations of suspended particulates are extremely high in most Chinese cities.  High sulfur dioxide concentrations and acid rain are also high in areas where high-sulfur coal is consumed, particularly in China’s northern cities that have greater particulate pollution challenges to address. Southern China regions such as Guangdong also have serious challenges with particulate matter, NOX, Mercury and SPM.
