Systematic methodology for the comparison of environmental control technologies for coal-fired electric generation
This report describes work performed as a subcontract to Argonne National Laboratory's project "Environmental Control Technology for Generation of Power from Coal." The intention of thatArgonne Program is to provide an independently developed assessment of alternative environmental control technologies for coal-fired electric power generation and to develop an independently evaluated set of recommendations for future environmental control technology research, development, and demonstration programs for these processes. This report describes a probabilistic, systems analytic methodology appropriate for use in comparing the alternative control technologies. In addition to the discussions about this probabilistic framework, there are examples.of the use of the framework for comparative purposes. Information is presented on the methods and sources for making these comparisons on health effects bases, as well as the relevant economic, technological, availability, resource use, emissions, and ambient-level information. In addition, there are bibliographies of key references in the related areas.
