EU states approve plans for stricter limits on pollutants from power plants

EU Member States approved on Friday (April 28th) new limits to the pollutants European large power plants are allowed to emit.

The decision imposes stricter caps on emissions of some toxic pollutants, such as nitrogen oxide  (NOx), sulphur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter (PM)

and for the first time, mercury (Hg) from industrial combustion plants across EU.

Overall, 2,900 EU’s combustion plants will be affected by the new rule, to be met by 2021
