Homework Help: Engineering

Posted by please help!! on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 5:50pm.

The power plant is to be operated in a region where the same company operates several other coal fired power plants that were all built in the 1960s. The new power plant is planned to have 500 MW energy generating capacity. The next largest plant is 50 MW and each is emitting pollution at least twice the NSPS. Based on the design the power plant is planned to have a raw pollution rate of 4 times the NSPS
for SO2 and 10 times the NSPS for PM
10. To make things worse the region where this plant is to be built is already in non attainment for PM10 having a 24-hour mean concentration of 200μg/m3. Also, local laws don't allow the local 24hour average ground level concentration of PM10 to exceed twice the NAAQS levels at any residential structure, given a normal atmospheric class C and an average wind speed of 2.5m/s.

Determine the required reductions in SO2 and PM10 to be compliant with NAAQS and NSPS, and ultimately comply with the clean air act?
