Power stations given until 2020 to meet emissions rules

Power stations given until 2020 to meet emissions rules
Fossil fuel power stations have been given a decade to comply with the next phase of European Union pollution rules.

The European Parliament's Industrial Emissions Directive which was passed earlier this week, includes stricter limits on nitrogen oxide, sulphur dioxide and dust emissions and will be introduced in 2016.

Older plants are not required to meet the targets, as long as they close by the end of 2023 or after 17,500 hours. Newer plants must still meet the 2012 deadline that applies to them.

The MEPs have also allowed a degree of flexibility, which will enable member states to use "transitional national plans" allowing them to extend deadlines until July 2020.

Holger Krahmer, the MEP responsible for guiding the legislation through Parliament, commented: "After more than two years of difficult negotiations we have a compromise that will help to improve the implementation of the directive. Compared to the current situation, this offers more clarity and a better chance of a level playing field across Europe on environmental requirements for industrial installations."

This month, plans for a new green power plant which could supply energy to 85,000 homes were proposed for Blackrod in Lancashire.ADNFCR-1235-ID-19881887-ADNFCR

There is a solution to this but it seems that no one has took my posts seriously, but it seems that soon I will be able to go to the second phase with the energy conversion unit, it could have been up and running long ago, My brother still in the UK has been trying to get the politicians there interested, but it seems that they do not want to listen.
I thought that 3megawatts of steady heat energy, from 12 lts a minuet of waste water would interest any one.
To beat that it can be retrofitted to any type of boiler large or small, for the bigger boilers you may need several of the 9MW units, 36lt per min. the best part is that you can recycle up to 90% of all the stack output as there is ZERO emission's. A dream, no the technology has been proven, I did not have any funds to continue, now I have enough to go to the next stage.

Hi yes this is his brother in UK Roy as computers nowadays if used wrongly can damage perfectly good Ideas and give the wrong people a Target (Spoof) names are created to stop spamming.
My Name is (Yoshic) in this case. I can assure you The Turbo Filter, waste Water Treatment Plant, and indeed the energy converter unit do work and yes almost 0 that is zero carbon emissions. I am about to take a trip to Australia in 2015 to give my brother help. So on my return have companies that are interested can get more details.
And several private companies are waiting my return. Don't miss the boat.
