• Proposal to Clean Up Connecticut's "Filty Five"

    Pages: 12

    A 12 page paper presenting a proposal and rationale for requiring that Connecticut's oldest operating power plants no longer be exempt from any current standards. Technology exists now that was only dreamed of in the 1970s; the business of pollution abatement is old enough that it is no longer a high-dollar item relative to the benefits it provides. Newer power plants are far more efficient than are older ones, both in their use of power-generating fuel and byproduct emissions. Industry has come to the place that power plant emissions are far less of an issue now than in the past, but there are older installations that were exempt from original standard-setting and have managed to remain so over the decades. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
