||This CD-ROM product contains data on emissions from fossil fuel-fired electric power plants, which was collected by the EPA Acid Rain Program under 40 CFR 75. Pollutants monitored include sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and carbon dioxide. The pollutants are generally monitored using continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) on an hourly basis. Also included is general operating data, including operating time, heat input, and gross unit load. There is also information on the unit's monitoring plan, and the results of tests required to be performed by the source to insure that its monitoring equipment is functioning properly. Electric utilities, energy consultants, and power marketing companies can use EPA Acid Rain Program emissions data to project future SO2 allowance costs and availability. Academic institutions can perform data modeling to evaluate environmental benefits and estimate health effects of SO2 reductions. EPA and other agencies use it to try to correlate the reduction of SO2 emissions with a decrease in acid precipitation, and also to measure the impacts of other existing and proposed emissions trading programs (e.g., for NOx and CO2).
||The datafile is on two CD-ROM discs. Documentation is on the disc. See also SUB-5431, PB98-502628, PB2000-500111, PB2000-500112, PB2001-500113, PB2001-500053, PB2002-500062.
