Introduction: the overarching issues -- The regulatory framework for coal-fired electricity generation -- Setting the technical foundation for modern power plants -1 (1900-1920) -- Setting the technical foundation for modern power plants - 2 (1920-1945) -- The emergence of modern coal-fired generation: 1945-75 -- Conventional power plant technology advances at the end of the 20th century (1970-2000) -- Development of new approaches to coal utilization for electricity generation -- Coal-fired power plants 2000 - present and beyond -- The development of postcombustion control technology. Coal-Fired Electricity and Emissions Control: Efficiency and Effectiveness discusses the relationship between efficiency and emissions management, providing methods for reducing emissions in newer and older plants as coal-fired powered plants are facing increasing new emission control standards. The book presents the environmental forces driving technology development for coal-fired electricity generation, then covers other topics, such as cyclone firing, supercritical boilers, fabric filter technology, acid gas control technology and clean coal technologies. The book relates efficiency and environmental considerations, particularly from a technology development perspective.
