New Weapon For the EPA and the Environment in the Wake of the Supreme Court’s Recent Coal Ruling

Press Release: July 16, 2015

The Supreme Court itself, granted a victory for coal companies and the coal fired power industry. After nearly a year the Supreme Court issues a judicial slap-in-the-face for the EPA’s clean air plans. Now a new technology, lets the coal companies and the EPA both save face by cutting coal burning costs while at the same time reducing emissions and making cleaner air.

New York, July 14, 2015 -- A little over a year ago, in June 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) took its stance against power providers utilizing coal in an all-out clampdown of mercantile interests. The Clean Power Plan against carbon pollution, based on section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act, was formulated with the single objective of reducing carbon emissions. The EPA’s consistent goal has been to improve energy efficiency in homes, offices, and plants, to use other types of renewable energy, and to promote the use of natural gas.

While environmental experts and the Obama government tried to push these impractical goals forward, a federal court has proved far more effective in understanding these challenges. A three judge panel in session for the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the EPA’s plans would potentially lead to installation of pollution control mechanisms over $10 million, with not even the slightest assurance of improvement in terms of the environmental effects such as haze (from burning coal for electricity for the west coast).

In an incredible moment of victory for coal companies throughout the states, the Supreme Court ruled that the Clean Air Act, when it was decided, set limits that were impractical with regards to the costs of the industry. The attorney general of the defending state of Michigan, Bill Schuette, was one of the first to laud this move by the Antonin Scalia-led ruling of 5-4.

Luckily for us, practical wisdom still rules the country more than impractical goals and idealists’ dreams. Saving thousands of workers in Michigan, from being laid off and losing their livelihood was a direct result of the Supreme Court’s decision. America does not need any more unemployed people – it has enough already in this ongoing recession.

The ultimate aim of the Clean Power Plan, however, should be geared towards reducing the environmental effects of burning fuel. Whether that impact is caused by natural gas or coal, there are more ways than one to approach this problem. As studied by scholars at both Cambridge and Cornell University, natural gas isn’t perhaps the clean source of fuel it’s been made out to be: in fact, natural gas may have potentially worse results on the environment than the use of coal, due to the fact that burning natural gas creates methane which traps 34x more heat in the earth’s atmosphere than CO2. So what are the possible solutions?

One approach is through introducing new clean coal pre-treatment technologies like the Burn Less Coal’s catalyst solution. This new pre-treatment for coal, is applied to the coal on a moving belt before it goes through the combustion process. The result is seen to lead to anywhere between a 12.5 – 25% decrease in the volume of coal being burned, as well as up to a 27% decrease in carbon dioxide levels.

This new approach, saves face for both the coal industry and the EPA, because each of the parties receives a benefit. The coal companies reduce their overhead and operating costs and the EPA gets a massive up to 27% CO2 reduction.
