GLRPPR Sector Resource: Michigan’s Mercury Electric Utility Workgroup Final Report on Mercury Emissions From Coal-Fired Power Plants

Title:
Michigan’s Mercury Electric Utility Workgroup Final Report on Mercury Emissions From Coal-Fired Power Plants

Abstract:
The Michigan Mercury Electric Utility Workgroup (Workgroup) was formed in response to a request by Governor Jennifer Granholm to provide a report to the Director of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). The Workgroup was charged with evaluating opportunities and developing recommendations for an emission reduction strategy for coal-fired electric generating units (EGUs) that achieve timely and measurable reductions in mercury emissions. In order to determine the feasibility and estimated cost of reducing mercury emissions and develop reduction recommendations, a number of technical and policy issues were examined. The Workgroup developed this report as a combined and coordinated effort, and it reflects information collected from numerous sources and participants. The final recommendations included in this report identify reduction strategies, taking into consideration the existing power plant fleet; current and developing mercury emission control technologies; current and future regulatory requirements; the cost to the consumer and to the industry; and considers environmental, economic, and public health impacts.
