    News
    When it comes to air pollution, technology has served as both a culprit and a cure. Devices used to control pollution from smokestacks and exhaust vents ... Some emissions are pre-treated before being released. For example, some power plants spray a limestone slurry (a mixture of limestone and water) to neutralize the acid resulting from burning coal. Catalytic converters that help decrease emissions from automobiles are another example. ...
    Virginia Power is getting into the pollution prevention act by using smokestack scrubbers to help reduce acid rain. At the Mt. Storm Power Station in West Virginia, smokestacks will be fitted with scrubbers that are expected to remove 95% of the sulfur dioxide from the smoke created by burning coal. (Sulfur oxides can mix with moisture in the air and become a component of acid rain.) The process works through a chemical reaction called neutralization when calcium in limestone, a base, mixes with sulfur dioxide, an acidic gas in the smoke, and creates calcium sulfate or gypsum. Some of the gypsum will be used to reclaim acidic water at mines near the plant. Virginia Power expects each of the scrubbers to remove about 55,000 tons of sulfur dioxide a year. This pollution prevention method is not only cost-effective for the power company, but also benefits air quality around the plant (including the Shenandoah National Park). http://www.vanaturally.com/guide/air.html
