EIA: SO2 Emissions at Power Plants Falling Faster than Coal Generation

Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions produced in the generation of electricity at power plants in the United States declined by 73 percent from 2006 to 2015, a much larger reduction than the 32 percent decrease in coal-fired electricity generation over that period, according to a report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. From 2014 to 2015, the most recent year with complete power plant emissions data, SO2 emissions fell 26 percent–the largest annual drop in percentage terms in the previous decade
