Gypsum Biomass: Dirtier Than Coal

View the charts proving Eagle Valley Energy Center’s biomass incinerator for Gypsum would be anything but “clean” energy and actually dirtier than a coal or natural gas plant, according to the draft air permit issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

    Shouldn’t you be comparing the Gypsum draft air permit to the Mt. Tom air permit (or better, a CO utility air permit, given same jurisdiction)?

    Often permit levels and actual levels vary – your case would be MUCH stronger if you did a permit to permit comparison.

  2. Thanks for the comment. We’ll take a look.

  3. It’s important for folks to understand that this biomass facility is legally ALLOWED to emit pollution at higher levels than an operating coal plant. How is that clean energy?
