  • Improve Plant Efficiency and Reduce CO2 Emissions When Firing High-Moisture Coals

Improving efficiency at existing coal-fired power plants anywhere in the world is a path of no regret: A more efficient power plant uses less coal, has lower emissions, and experiences lower variable costs. Great River Energy’s Coal Creek Station has demonstrated that by recycling low-grade waste heat with DryFining, it can reduce emissions, including CO2, and improve plant performance when burning wet coal.

  • Coal-Fired Power Plant Heat Rate Improvement Options, Part 2

Even without regulatory considerations, there are good reasons for virtually every coal-fired power plant to improve its heat rate. The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has looked at dozens of methods for improving heat rates and evaluated their applicability and costs. Part 2 of this two-part series details several EPRI case studies of heat rate improvements and summarizes key takeaways.

  • Understanding Coal Power Plant Heat Rate and Efficiency

Proposed U.S. standards for reducing carbon emissions from existing coal-fired power plants rely heavily upon generation-side efficiency improvements.

  • Fuel, operations, and plant design all affect the overall efficiency of a plant, as well as its carbon emissions. This review of the fundamentals of coal plant efficiency, frequent problems that reduce efficiency, and some solutions for improving operation and reducing generation costs should be valuable to plants wherever they are located.
