Tenaska Trailblazer prepared for new greenhouse gas standards

April 11, 2012

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released its draft rules to limit greenhouse gas emissions, requiring carbon dioxide (CO2) emission controls on new coal plants that are similar to those of the Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center.
The Trailblazer project is designed to capture 85 to 90 percent of the CO2 it produces, keeping emission levels well below the requirements of the EPA’s draft rule. Projects like Trailblazer are important because they help develop and commercialize the technology that can meet such standards.
