Minnesota’s coal-fired power plants have cut their mercury emissions in half over the last 15 years, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency said Monday.
Clean air advocates are suing the Environmental Protection Agency, seeking an order to require the EPA to mandate that Xcel Energy install the best available technology to reduce emissions at Minnesota’s biggest power plant.
More than 32 mostly coal-fired power plants in a dozen states will be forced to shut down and an additional 36 might have to close because of new federal air pollution regulations, according to an Associated Press survey.
Minnesota is known as ‘The Land of 10,000 Lakes’ and we have an overabundance of green spaces and bike paths too, but a new study finds that Minneapolis is one of the most polluting cities in the world.
Supporters say a ruling from the Environmental Protection Agency could help development of the biomass energy industry in northeastern Minnesota.
In a new case about climate change, the Supreme Court will hear an appeal from electric utilities that are trying to short-circuit an effort by states to force cuts in power plant emissions.
