Air Pollutant Emissions

10/30/20

Percentage of Thermal Power Generation by Fuel Type

Gas Power Plants Accounted for the Largest Proportion in 2019

Improvements over the Years

TPC thermal power plants made significant progresses by executing their air quality control system retrofit project, air pollutants emission density (kg/MWh) has been decreasing year by year.

Note:
  1. The red lines represent the standards.
  2. According the Air Pollutant Control Act, the sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter from the coal-fired power plants are required to be regulated. And the criteria are different from the time of establishment and the amount of the emission.

Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Results (Nearby Power Plant Area)

Principles for Setting up Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Stations

Based on the results of the air pollution emission simulation of thermal power plants in the environmental impact assessment report, Taiwan Power Company (TPC) makes plans for setting the location and number of stations of the "Air Quality Monitoring Stations" in the most environmentally impacted or sensitive areas, which are different from that the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) does based upon population distribution, traffic, industrial areas, meteorological conditions and other factors. The monitoring data of the "Air Quality Monitoring Stations" that has been set up in TPC's thermal power plants are as follows:
