Correcting the Record:
What the Media Says —
“Coal-fired power plants do not use clean coal technology.”
The Reality –
There are 16 clean coal technologies being used today by the U.S. coal fleet. These include wet and dry scrubbers to reduce SO2 emissions, selective and non-selective catalytic reduction to reduce NOx emissions, and electrostatic precipitators and fabric filter technology to reduce PM. Every coal-fired power plant in the U.S. uses one or more clean coal technologies. Source: American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity.
