Power Producers Fined For Air Pollution By Coal-fired Plants

Bloomberg | 6th Nov 08

Four of the mainland’s five biggest power producers, including China Datang Corp, were fined for emitting excessive amounts of sulphur dioxide last year, the government said. Seven coal-fired power plants operated by companies including Datang, China Guodian Corp, China Huadian Corp, China Power Investment Corp and Shenzhen Energy Group released more sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere than permitted, the Ministry of Environmental Protection said yesterday. Shenzhen Energy is partly owned by Huaneng Power International, a unit of the mainland’s biggest electricity generator.
