The U.S. generates nearly 300 million used tires each year. Which have 125% of the BTU value of coal. Using existing used tires instead of coal diverts the tire volume from landfill and saves the GHGs that would otherwise be prodused from burning coal. Burning used tires produces more of some GHGs and less of others. Overall most experts agree used tires produce 20% less GHGs than coal

State owned Coal India Ltd is making plans to join the power sector as its strategy for forward integration. Plans include the building of two new power plants with an aggregate capacity of 1,500 MW. Current estimates show both mines together have reserves of over 2 billion tons. The size of these reserves should be good enough to feed power generation at the two proposed plants for the next 30 years, said one official.
EPA�s rule on coal plants mercury emissions has been challenged �source USATODAY At issue is the Environmental Protection Agency�s 2005 Clean Air Mercury Rule, which allows utilities to buy and sell emissions credits. The rule is being challenged by a coalition of environmental groups, 14 states and a number of Native American tribes. In 2000, during the Clinton administration, the EPA said coal burning power plants should be required to use the most high-tech, effective emissions available to reduce mercury emissions. During the Bush administration, the EPA officials reversed course, saying the original decision didn�t account for reductions in mercury emissions that would occur as power plants installed controls aimed at other air pollutants. Will the appellate judges overturn the EPA�s emission rule? Will a new administration require even tougher controls?
