The Trump administration is expected as soon as this week to unveil a proposal to replace the Clean Power Plan, former President Barack Obama’s signature initiative to combat climate change, with a narrower rule more friendly to industry.

The 2015 Clean Power Plan, which was never implemented because of a Supreme Court stay, required states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, by shifting away from coal plants.

The article goes on to state the following:

It was the pledge that underpinned the U.S.’ commitment to the Paris climate change agreement before President Trump rejected the deal.

In choosing to replace the Clean Power Plan, rather than repeal it outright, the Environmental Protection Agency is acknowledging the federal government is legally obligated to regulate emissions of carbon and other greenhouse gases that cause global warming.

“If they don’t do anything about it, the next administration might adopt a worse regulation, so this is checking the box for the coal fleet on carbon regulation in the near-term,” Paul Bailey, president emeritus and former CEO of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, told the Washington Examiner.

  1. Clean Coal Technology Market to Record Sturdy Growth by 2024.

    Carbon dioxide can be captured out of air or fossil fuel power plant flue gas using adsorption (or carbon scrubbing), membrane gas separation, or adsorption technologies. Amines are the leading carbon scrubbing technology. Capturing and compressing CO2 also results in the capture of many rare elements, that can be sold on or used in other industries and technologies.
