Total air releases is the sum of NOx, SO2, CO2, PM10, VOCs, acidgases, and mercury (PM2.5 is included in PM10). The specific land waste metals were chosen due to their potential to contaminate groundwater. Metals listed Include metals andtheir compounds. The Total Reported Land Releases column does not reflect all solid waste generated from coal-fired power plants. Water releases include total releases from theToxics Release Inventory (TRI). SO2, NOx, and CO2 emissions come from the EPA’s Continuous Emissions Monitoring System data for 2000. Mercury is calculated by applying themercury emission rates developed in “Mercury Falling” (Environmental Working Group, Clean Air Network, and NRDC, 1999) to the heat input reported in the EPA CEMS data for2000. PM2.5, PM10, VOCs, and acid gas emission rates were calculated based on the Clean Air Network’s data for 1998 emissions. The emission rates were applied to the heatinput for 2000. All other data came from the Clean Air Network 1998 data. All calculations were done by MSB Energy Associates for the Clean Air Task Force.
