Fossil-fuel-based power plants play an important role in global energy production and also some importance in carbon reduction as broadly renewable energy.
In recent years there have been many advances that have existed within the field of renewable and efficient energies, something that is simply indispensable in today’s world, where pollution rates are higher and the risk of damage is high.
And all these advances are made for a single common goal, which is to stop the degree of pollution emitted by carbon power plants or nuclear plants, things that are often very difficult to control and are harmful to the environment. Yet the efforts have not gone down in intensity and many scientists are looking for new ways to extract energy from the Earth ever cleaner.
Carbon Capture and Storage
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is one of the few technologies capable of reducing CO2 emissions by 90%, a very high percentage compared to the other technologies that are currently being used to prevent the emission of more pollution.
It is for the same reason that various governments in all countries have tried to further develop this type of revolutionary technology that will completely change the world.
Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle
Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle is another type of technology leader in the efforts of various countries. The only downside is that it is very expensive and it would be difficult to invest in the widespread use of the whole system, despite the costs, the benefits to the environment are undeniable. IGCC plants convert coal into a synthesis gas, which is cleaned before being sent to a cycle system to generate electricity.
Continuous Emission Monitor
It is then that we understand that the key to reducing the emission of pollution is the fixed state standards and the fulfillment of the industry in the field of energies. Continuous Emission Monitoring systems are vital for transmitting reliable emissions data to industry operators and inspectors.
This system works by extracting and diluting samples of combustion gases before being channeled to an analysis system.
Selective Catalytic Reduction
Millions of fossil fuel power plants worldwide have invested in selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems to reduce NOx emissions in a large number, which generally contribute to global warming and acid rain, as well how to stop plant growth and damage crops around the world. This involves the injection of ammonia or urea into the current of gases to convert NOx into nitrogen.
SCR systems require a high level of precision to easily convert NOx into nitrogen, and that degree of precision has a relatively low cost compared to other today’s technologies, so it’s a good choice for preventing Earth damage.
Many governments around the world have joined the development of this system to minimize costs and generate more clean energy using technology. Perhaps this is the next salvation of humanity in many years, or maybe not, it all depends on the scientists and industries.
For the same reasons we must raise awareness around the world, we need clean energies that do not harm our homes, we need to be stronger and less dependent on harmful energies with high carbon emissions. Finally, the Earth is our home, and we should not harm it.
