IEA Clean Coal Centre provides unbiased information on the clean and efficient use of coal world-wide, including subjects related to clean coal technology. Funded by member countries and industrial sponsors IEA CCC products include in-depth topical reports available in PDF form, a range of workshop series, the Clean Coal Technologies Conference, and online databases of coal information and resources. IEA CCC also provides direct advice, facilitation of R & D and networks.

From 1 January 2013, our reports are available as free downloads for residents of member countries or employees of sponsoring organisations. Six months after publication reports are freely available to all. Non-members can purchase reports for £100 in the first 6 months after publication. Everyone wishing to obtain a report must be registered with the IEA Clean Centre before proceeding with the download.

Emission standards and control of PM2.5 from coal-fired power plant, CCC/267

Research Report: CCC/267

Fine particulate matter, PM2.5, can include SO2, NOx, toxic volatile organic compounds, heavy metals, water and biogenic organic species. PM2.5 can be emitted directly or form in the atmosphere from the reactions of other pollutants. Coal-fired power plants are a major source of PM2.5. There are international and national emission standards to limit PM2.5. The standards for Australia, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa, Thailand and the USA are described. There are various ways to measure PM2.5 in the atmosphere. The emission of PM2.5 from coal-fired plants can be controlled pre-combustion, in-combustion and post-combustion. Pre-combustion control is by coal selection and coal preparation. In-combustion control is by optimising combustion and the injection of sorbents into the flame zone. There are various methods of post-combustion control of PM2.5 emissions, including conventional particle emission control devices (PECD) such as electrostatic precipitators (ESP) and fabric filters, and innovative PECDs such as flue gas conditioning and wet ESPs. Other methods of post-combustion control include agglomeration, various hybrid systems, and multi-pollutant control systems. Recent developments in PM emission control technologies are reviewed.
