Emissions management and Alberta's electricity sector
This framework is aimed at continuous improvement of air emissions standards for electricity generation.
Proposed reductions in the framework are:
- Mercury: 50 per cent (end of 2009)
- Sulphur dioxide: 46 per cent (by 2025)
- Nitrogen dioxide: 32 per cent (by 2025)
- Particulate matter: 51 per cent (by 2025)
