While most power plants in Iran use gas to generate electricity, Bandar Abbas Thermal Power Station is among the few still using mazut as the main feedstock and is a major source of air pollution in the capital of southern Hormozgan Province, director general of Hormozgan Provincial Directorate of Department of Environment said.
“Carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide emissions by the plant are, respectively, four times and 2.5 times the allowable limit,” Habib Masihi Taziani was quoted as saying by Bargh News.
Efforts are underway to supply sufficient natural gas to the plant and cut mazut consumption to reduce emissions, the official added.
