 Air Pollutant Emissions and Air Quality

07/23/21

Percentage of Thermal Power Generation by Fuel Type in 2020

Gas Power Plants Accounted for the Largest Proportion in 2020

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. Air pollutants is an internal statistics, including Chienshan and Tashan Thermal Power Plants. TPC will rolling review air pollutant emission datum.
  2. Air pollutants emission density(kg/MWh) calculates by NOx.

 

The Concentration of the Air Pollutant Emission from Thermal Power Plants

The Thermal Power Plants in Taiwan

The concentration of the air pollutants emission from all TPC thermal power plants are measured up the government and local environmental criteria.

The Comparison between the Air Pollutants Emission Standards and the 2020 Annual Average Concentrations of Coal-Fired Power Plants

The Comparison between the Air Pollutants Emission Standards and the 2020 Annual Average Concentrations of Coal-Fired Power Plants

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.
  3. *represent not running of the current year.

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:
