Steve Jobs was a complicated character, and we are still waiting for a movie to do him justice. You won’t find that in the current iteration written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle….
Attorney and tech podcaster Katie Floyd and I talk about her "best practices" for managing a busy life.
“First and foremost, WA Parish meets all EPA and state air permit and emission requirements for operation.
As for National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), the best way to demonstrate that the NAAQS for SO2 is being attained is through actual measurements of ambient air over an extended period of time. At this time, there are no SO2 monitors in Fort Bend County. Nearby monitors in Greater Houston, northeast of Parish, and in Freeport, TX, south-southeast of Parish, show the air quality to be in attainment with the SO2 NAAQS. In fact, even all monitors in the heavily industrialized Houston Ship Channel area are demonstrating attainment with the SO2 standard. In the absence of monitoring data , air quality modeling can be used as an indicator of air quality. Modeling is complex and requires a substantial amount of inputs and assumptions, related to meteorology, emissions, etc.
As the authors of the Beyond Coal campaign, it is not surprising that Sierra’s assumptions, interpretations and modeling would made to show Fort Bend County around the Parish plant to be over the standard.
NRG has provided detailed modeling to the EPA that shows that Fort Bend County and the area around Parish is attaining the SO2 NAAQS. The lead environmental agency for the state of Texas, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has also filed with the EPA that Fort Bend in in compliance. The ultimate determination will be made by the EPA and we are confident that determination will show that Fort Bend County is in attainment.
I would also add that NRG is leading a $1 billion effort to build America’s first carbon capture facility on an existing coal plant at Parish. In addition to capturing 90% of the carbon dioxide in the processed flue gas, it will also capture virtually all of the sulfur from that flue gas. Construction on that project is on schedule and on budget and the carbon capture system should be operational by the end of 2016.”
