Gallatin Fossil Plant
TVA has taken a number of steps to make the efficient generation of power at Gallatin as clean as possible:
- The plant is equipped with electrostatic precipitators that capture ash from the burning coal.
- The use of low-sulfur blend coal limits emissions of sulfur dioxide.
- Low-NOx burners limit the production of nitrogen oxides.
- In support of recent environmental agreements and its vision of being one of the nation’s leading providers of low-cost and cleaner energy by 2020, TVA plans to add scrubbers and selective catalytic reduction systems on all four units at Gallatin by Dec. 31, 2017.
