Emission Reduction Target & Performance
Long Term Target
Emission Reduction Programs
Following best practice approaches, stack emission criteria has been determined and set as key performance indicator for EGCO Group’s power plants to control air quality of the plants above legal standards or the level set in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). This is to ensure that company’s operation is of high efficiency and negative environment impacts are minimized. Air quality monitoring has been undertaken on a regular basis including online continuous emission monitoring 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, installing modern and environmentally friendly equipment/ technology that increases emission reduction efficiency at the power plants e.g. electrostatic precipitator and continuous emission monitoring system, use of nitrogen oxides reduction technology by installing dry low NOx burner to reduce the impacts of emissions on the environment and communities.
