  • Thomas L. Neff, in The Social Costs of Solar Energy, 1981. Emissions. Significant environmental impacts may result from the addition to the environment of various substances from coal combustion, nuclear plant or fuel cycle operations, and from photovoltaic manufacturing and applications. The emissions of coal plants have been studied extensively, though there is still uncertainty about the

  • coal drying equipment and impact of fuel moisture on plant performance and emissions are discussed. The improvement in boiler and unit performance, achieved during the test by removing 6 percent of fuel moisture was in the 2.6 to 2.8 percent range. This performance improvement is primarily due to a reduction in moisture evaporation loss, lower

  • Coal and global warming. Of coal’s many environmental impacts, none are as harmful, long term, and irreversible as global warming. Global warming is driven by emissions of heat-trapping gases, primarily from human activities, that rise into the atmosphere and act like a blanket, warming the earth’s surface.
