The report discusses the background and issues related to the control of air pollutants emitted by a large coal-burning plant in eastern Ohio. The plant not only has had a history of severely exceeding Ohio's State Implementation Plan (SIP) particulate emission limit, but also its SO2 emissions have exceeded the limit of Ohio's forthcoming SIP. An important issue is the extent to which compliance with the SIP will promote the plant's switching from Ohio coals to Southern Appalachian coals (which produce fewer particulate and SO2 emissions) and the consequent disruption to Ohio's coal mining industry. Addressing this issue, the report examines the plant's historical coal usage, the production and characteristics of Ohio and Southern Appalachian coals, the relevance of coal-sulfur variability, and the feasibility and implications of producing and burning cleaned Ohio coals as a strategy for complying with Ohio's SIP. The report discusses factors that will affect the relative economics of burning cleaned Ohio coals at the plant. The report indicates that, by burning cleaned Ohio coals, the plant's largest and newest units (constituting 60% of the plant's total capacity) can increase their consumption of Ohio coal by 50-100%, depending on the characteristics of the coals and the cleaning processes used.
