UNIT 4 IP: PURE Abstract The impact in neighborhoods and the overall environment surrounding a power plant, or for that matter any plant that handles production of goods, can be devastating when proper techniques, guidelines, and laws are not followed. Due to this potential impact, policies are often written and adopted to address these impacts and concerns to aide in attempting to stem negative impacts from occurring in the first place, for any reason. Our paper will provide the logic used in determining such new policies and guidelines, and further explain how these new guidelines and policies enable the protection of those neighborhoods and overall environments that surround a production facility. We will use the example case of a Coal Power Production Plant as a basis for examination and explanation of concepts in the paper to aide in understanding. 2

UNIT 4 IP: PURE Coal power plants are often the target of scrutiny from the public and organizations aimed at protecting consumers from harmful goods or services because of the large number of highly toxic emissions generated while burning coal. Amongst the long list of these emissions are the following most note-worthy contributors, along with their impacts (EIA.gov, 2011): Sulfur Dioxide, which is proven to be a major producer of respiratory illnesses and contributes to acid rain. Nitrogen Oxides, a contributor to smog and respiratory illnesses. Carbon Dioxide, which is known around the world as one of the primary greenhouse gasses. Other Particulates, which contribute to smog, respiratory illnesses, haze, and lung diseases.
