It is committed to improving the efficiency of the air quality control system of the company.

Management Approach

Emission Reduction Target & Performance

Long Term Target

Maintain the air quality of the power plants to be above the legal standards

2022 Target
  • NOx Emissions Intensity not over 0.54 Metric Tons per Gigawatt-hour

  • SOx Emissions Intensity not over 0.40 Metric Tons per Gigawatt-hour

2022 Performance
  • NOx Emissions Intensity not over 0.54 Metric Tons per Gigawatt-hour

  • SOx Emissions Intensity not over 0.37 Metric Tons per Gigawatt-hour

Emission Reduction Programs

Following best practice approaches, stack emission criteria have been determined and set as a key performance indicator for EGCO Group’s power plants to control the air quality of the plants above legal standards and in accordance with the indicated level reported in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). This is to ensure that the company’s operation is of high efficiency and negative environmental impacts are minimized. Air quality monitoring has been undertaken on a regular basis including continuous emission monitoring via an automated system and random stack emissions monitoring every 6 months by external registered parties.

EGCO Group aims to improve its operational process to function efficiently by setting up a regular machinery and equipment testing and maintenance plan and installing modern and environmentally friendly equipment/ technology that increases efficiency for stack emission reduction at the power plants.
