Abstract

The generation of utilizable forms of energy, mainly electricity and heat, carriesan environmental impact – as does any human industrial activity. In the case ofthe power industry based on fossil fuels, this impact is connected with the emissionof technological by-products, not necessarily of a material character. It is obviousthat the Polish point of view on this problem is connected with the unique degreeof dependence of the national power industry on coal. Two aspects of the emissionreduction problem are analyzed in this article: the technological, connected withthe permanent development of flue-gas cleaning; and the administrative, connectedwith limiting the permissible polluter concentration in flue gases. It is shown thatduring the development of the power industry to date, those relations led to aneffectiveness efficiency of flue-gas cleaning installations which seemed impossibleat the moment of its implementation. The main goal of this work is to demonstratethat the regulations being introduced by the European Commission stronglydisturb the present relations between technical capabilities and administrativerequirements.
