Suppose you are the Environmental & Safety Manager for a utility company trying to build a petroleum hydrocarbon based power plant in Texas. For economic reasons, there are only a few places from where the petroleum products can be purchased, transported, and used. What are the primary air pollution sources and concerns? What can be done with the petroleum products, prior to burning, to minimize some of these environmental problems? What are the impacts of these changes, if any, on the cost of power generation? What kinds of environmental air emission problems do these airborne pollutants cause to the environment? Discuss these environmental problems at length. What control measures can be taken to reduce the amount of air pollutants being emitted to the atmosphere (also called atmospheric loading of pollutants). How will these control measures reduce the atmospheric loading of air pollutants?
