That's among the larger reductions the EPA is calling for in its push to reduce emissions.</p><p> Tue, 03 Jun 2014 13:24:53 +0000 Michael Tomsic 52182 at http://wfae.org What New EPA Proposed Rule On Power Plant Emissions Means For NC Duke's Most Efficient Plant Not Efficient Enough For EPA Rule http://wfae.org/post/dukes-most-efficient-plant-not-efficient-enough-epa-rule <p></p><p></p><p>Duke’s Edwardsport plant in Indiana is a “coal gasification” plant, meaning the coal gets turned into a gas and some of the pollutants get filtered out, before moving into the turbine.&nbsp; Company spokesman Chad Eaton says it is the most efficient coal plant in the country, since opening this summer. But, even it would surpass the limit the EPA announced today on the amount of emissions new coal power plants will be able to release.</p><p> Fri, 20 Sep 2013 21:07:45 +0000 Ben Bradford 35759 at http://wfae.org Duke's Most Efficient Plant Not Efficient Enough For EPA Rule Carbon Nation http://wfae.org/post/carbon-nation <p> We have discussed global warming and how we can reduce our carbon footprint several times on this show but we generally focused on the debate about whether climate change is real and man-made. Our guest today, film director Peter Byck, decided to forget the debate. He simply traveled the country to meet people who were actively reducing their carbon footprint whether they believed in global warming or not. These people just think it’'s smarter to use less energy or to create it more efficiently. Byck sees these innovators and entrepreneurs as part of “Carbon Nation” and he made a film by the same name. He'’ll join us when Charlotte Talks.</p><p> Mon, 03 Dec 2012 05:00:00 +0000 16817 at http://wfae.org Carbon Nation
