At around 6 minutes the video repeats itself.

This guy needs to read over his script better .... or his script writers suck ... ir crappy information and nobody checked facts. 1) 36,000 Tons a day delivered with 26 train loads only equates to about 12 hopper cars of coal per train load. I'm guessing it should have been 360,000 tons equating to 120 hopper cars per train load. 2) He said there were 6 steam turbines ( as seen in video graphic) then proceeds to say ... "Inside 5 steam turbines ..."

Shitty "music", underexposed scenes, silly comparisons, flashing scenes, silly whooshes, does not show alternators, does not know the difference between voltage and current, no, not like fridge magnets. Drax is in England, shows road in North America. Pathetically cheap and nasty Can't be downvoted enough.

For every ton of coal, you release 2.75 ton of CO2. Coal has to go.

So much pollution.. nothing lyke energy nuclear. Clean energy, no CO2 and cheap.

When the UK uses coal instead of gas they edmit 1000 of CO2 extra every hour. By using coal the UK is now instead of gas the CO2 goals are in trouble. Germany on the other hand is still lowering their emission of CO2.

This plant is still dirty, the gypsum is made from scrubbing the flue gas, but they didn't tell you about the tons of bottom ash that has to be collected and stored. Coal is dirty, but necessary. Coal-fired generation is cheap, reliable, and dependable. I operated units like these for years. Until a reliable AND affordable generation portfolio is available, coal will have its necessary place serving the energy needs of the country.

Burning coal creates two streams of poison. One stream goes up the smoke stack, the other is the ash residue. Given the coal burned in  this plant is a dust, the coal ash residue is probably an even finer dust traveling up the stack with the exhaust gasses. Even if the exhaust filters really do catch 90%, or even 100%, 36,000 tons of coal a day is going to result in several tons a day of ash. How is that disposed of? Even if 90% of the pollutants are "captured", given the immense volume of coal burned in this plant, 10% is still a significant amount of  poison introduced into the atmosphere. The video also made no mention of CO2. There is no such thing as "clean coal".

+Trevor Porter Thank you. I wasn't aware of the fly ash use in concrete, and I'm skeptical about turning CO2 into a  harmless solid after using it for fracking. As I understand it, CO2 can exist as a solid only at very low temperatures.  Dry ice is solid CO2. There is also the issue of mercury and sulfer dioxide in coal exhaust gasses. There still is no  such thing as "clean" coal. It is more than a little ironic that coal-fired power plant would be supplying material to aid the fracking business.  Advances in fracking natural gas has made coal, especially "clean" coal, economically untenable. Equipment needed  to recover, transport, and ultimately dipose of coal's toxic waste is expensive, only adding to coal's economic  disadvantage.
Trevor Porter (1 month ago)
The plant I work at sends its fly ash away to be used in the cement making process so no slurry ponds. And th co2 is captured by a japanese facility and pumped in a supercritical state to the oil field for fracking then after use it is turned into a solid. Clean.

Coal is a cheap clean fuel with the addition of scrubbers and precipitators. Natural gas Is a better fuel and the US has been building gas uNits for thirty years. Precipitators have been around for sixty years. Bowl mills are better than ball mills. Scrubbers bothe wet and dry have been around since the sixties. The problem facing coal is the propaganda put out by the left wing communist like the ignorant Obama

Those are the days that I can go to the ER and visit with my asthmatic neighbors. Putting clean power in my backyard won't help us. The only thing that will help us is shutting down the 4 superpolluters in the valley. Check the video out @ superpolluters.com, you might see my house- or my grave if you wait a little while.

David I live in WV and I can tell you coal is dead and Trump is full of shit    The only reason Trump campaigned on saving coal was because Hillary made the mistake of saying she was going to put a lot coal miners out of work not realizing how many people worked in the industry had it not been for that I doubt Trump could give a damn about a coal miner I know he has been in WV several times but he's just trying to get Joe Manchin a Democrat  out of the senate ( I don't know why after all Joe's lips are permanently attached to Trumps rectum as seen in the Kavanagh vote)

Why don't we start cremating people in coal plants for free? The high cost of regular​ cremation is cost prohibitive for a lot of poor Greenies. And this can help power the planet with their bodies. At least this will make them useful for something.

ThunderWindz (1 year ago)
Well this is good but there are many misunderstandings in it. ex. the 23.000 volts from the generator out to the transformerstation is not becuase it needs more power. But because higher volts is easier to transport, since the current is lower and thereby the wire size can be made smaller.
RangieNZ (1 month ago)
Kind of. Power losses in wires, are proportional to the square-of-the current. You can minimise power losses in transport, by keeping the voltage high (and hence current low), then drop the voltage close to the consumers.

U. S. Electric Companies are you watching! This is how it is done! Clean and cheap energy COAL! Now all you have to do is build these power plants!
Curtis Slone (1 month ago)
Many of the major energy producers have already converted their power plants to natural gas. Do you think they're going back to coal since natural gas is both cleaner and cheaper, or at least competitive in price? There's also the issue of containing the waste from using coal to produce energy. It's deposited in slurry ponds which contain lead, mercury, and arsenic. If you remember, Duke Energy had one of these slurry ponds break free from the concrete barrier it was contained in. This contaminated the drinking water in North Carolina. Here in eastern Kentucky, where I live, these slurry ponds have flooded houses and contaminated water wells. My entire family has worked in the coal mining industry. It's dangerous work, one of my grandfather's was killed in the mines while another was paralyzed. If you've ever used coal to heat your home you would know how truly filthy it is. This industry needs to die because it's far too dangerous and completely unsafe to use.
Matthew Hemmings (5 months ago)
pavman1000 The problem isn’t that it emits toxic emissions. Almost no toxic emissions are emitted in the developed world. The issue is the huge amount of CO2 released. Thousands of years of CO2 captured is released all at once.
Zulbak (1 year ago)
This is not hardly new, this is old technology. The US EPA has railroaded this industry. Too many fines, and too much costs to produce these in the US due to silly EPA laws.
Michael Lloyd (1 year ago)
Yup... As I watched this I kept thinking - this isn't new. There plants all along the Ohio river that use this "technology".
rohnerw (1 year ago)
The technology demonstrated, has long been used in the US. This tech is not, new. ~40% of the electricity generated in the US, is from coal fired power plants. Another ~28% is from gas fired power plants. Both resources which the US has in abundance. ~20% is from nuclear plants and the rest is from hydro, wind and solar.

mark kerlin (1 month ago)
Wow, are you really so stupid you buy into the media and governments bullshit? Coal and gasoline will be around at least until they can come up with an alternative that isn't bullshit. Wind only works when windy and is very inefficient and solar only works well with direct sunlight and after 3 days of stormy weather is useless. How does paying a carbon tax help? Takes money from you and gives it to the government and that makes it all better. What nonsense, just as global warming is nonsense. CO2 makes more clouds and cools the planet. Water vapor is far more controls weather then CO2. What causes heating and cooling? The sun, how stupid are the sheep that buy into this crap. Natural gas is the future.

First off, thanks for uploading. Secondly, why no mention of the vast amount of greehouse gases (GHGs) emitted from coal-fired power? I imagine because it doesn't have a "feel good solution", like the electrostatic precipitators, etc. in this story. Which is too bad because this is an important issue and it was ignored in this piece. Thanks again.

Some experimental plants are capturing the co2 and using high pressure pumps to put it back under ground. However we have been for a long time now been burning our oxygen faster than the plants can produce it. Deforestation, building houses and roads, poisoning of the oxygen producers in the Oceans is not helping. In time like selling bottled water we will sell bottled oxygen. The rich will do like Michael Jackson did, sleep in oxygen enriched chambers or homes. I have heard that sleeping in a greenhouse full of plants is great if you can tolerate the elevated temperature and humidity. Survivalist may have to consider buying and storing oxogen ha ha ha ha.

Depends on the back end. The scrubbing units and the bag house. Coal burns a lot cleaner than you think. Cars on the road put out more emissions in a day than a plant

Did I miss something or did they forget to mention in the video that a generator is connected to the shaft of the turbine and is the next step in the process? Look at minute 3:42 (approximately). He basically says the turbine generates the electricity.
