What is bad about the coal power stations?
Coal is a nonrenewable source, meaning the coal will soon run out, we will then need an alternate power source, such as solar, wind, hydro, power.
the thermal power stations are not only located in India, they are located in the part of the world where there are coal reserves, India has large coal reserve located in various parts of M.P,C.G,JHARKHAND & KOLKATA,this is the reason behind the location of thermal power stations in India,as these stations use coal for the generation of electricity
The most significant resource that a coal fired power station uses is of course coal. Coal is a non renewable natural resource and mining of coal has significant negative effects. In many cases coal is mined in sensitive grassland and wetland habitats - causing significant water pollution. Power stations also rely on large amounts of freshwater in the cooling towers as part of the power production process.
The coal mines dig up the coal from under the earth. The coal is then sold to whoever wants it. Some industries use coal for power. Coal-fired power stations are a huge buyer of coal. They burn the coal to heat water and use the steam to turn turbines which produce electricity. This electricity is then passed on to Energy Companies who sell the power to us.
Coal power stations burn coal to heat water to produce steam, which is then used to spin electricity turbines to generate electricity. The burning coal releases carbon dioxide. Wind farms have blades which turn in the wind to spin electricity turbines to generate electricity. There are no harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
A nuclear power plant generates no air pollution, and a lot of energy. generates more engery Nuclear power stations generate lots of electricity and it is a relatively clean way of doing so. They need less fuel to run on, and it is cheaper for the public. Coal power stations release carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide which contribute to global warming and acid rain. Nuclear power stations are safer than coal power stations (because the…
They produce steam at high temperature and pressure which is fed into a steam turbine/generator set. The steam can be raised by fossil fuel (coal, oil, gas) or by nuclear energy. In Coal or oil-fired power stations, and in most gas-fired power stations, the burning fuel heats water in a boiler. this produces steam. the steam drives a turbine that turns an electricity generator. Coal, oil and gas are fossil fuels, which are fossil fuels…
