Inefficient thermal power plants may shut down in amidst of rising pollutions

Some of the old running power plants may be asked to shut their operations due to higher carbon emission. Government has shown its keenness towards adoption of more efficient technologies to reduce carbon footprints and opt for ways that curb rising pollution.

Old thermal power plants that are running with higher carbon emissions have usually lower PLF thus resulting in loss of energy and also increased Sox and Nox emission. Augmentation of such thermal plants is also not economically possible. So it would be more beneficial to shut these plants and put the land to another use.
