The Environmental Protection Agency's ruling to lower mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants won't have an impact on the planned White Stallion Energy Center, Rikki Stanley, local development director for White Stallion Energy, said.
The new rule requires coal-fired power plants to put in pollution controls to reduce toxic emissions, but White Stallion is being built in Bay City using the latest technology, Stanley said.
"White Stallion Energy Center is permitted with a 'state of the art' activated carbon injection system to compliment our baghouse particulate controls. This emission system is deemed best available control technology by TCEQ and EPA," Stanley said, so their plans won't be impacted by the new EPA regulation.
