Energy shortages, primarily of oil and natural gas, have increased the importance of domestic coal reserves. Although coal is the United States most abundant source of fossil fuel energy, its increased use without adequate environmental safeguards could aggravate the nation's already serious environmental problems. This report focuses on the compliance status of existing coal-fired steam electric power plants and on alternative methods for compliance with applicable emission regulations. Compliance alternatives include the use of low-sulfur coal, physical coal desulfurization, flue-gas desulfurization, coal gasification, fluidized-bed boilers, supplementary control systems, and energy recovery from solid waste. A review is presented showing the current status of existing coal-fired plants in terms of the sulfur content of coal purchased during the first half of 1974, the involvement of power companies in litigation challenging the applicable regulations, and the programs for achieving compliance with sulfur regulations in State Implementation Plans.
