Demand for small modular reactors may be impacted by Supreme Court ruling on EPA coal plant emissions
from The Energy Collective
coal emissionsOn June 29, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out EPA's coal emissions regulations that, if implemented, would have forced many utilities to close older coal-fired plants. The new emissions controls are aimed at mercury and other toxic pollutants which are not removed from stack emissions by current air pollution controls. The court ruling will require EPA to reconsider the regulations in light of the cost-benefit issue.
