Item Number: DI05

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is released to the atmosphere during the combustion of coal in the production of electricity. As a greenhouse gas, CO2 emissions are carefully monitored. This map journal contains information about CO2 emissions from coal in Indiana. The maps show major point sources of CO2 emissions, including industrial and institutional coal-burning electric power plants, and also Indiana coal mines. In addition, the map journal contains tabular and graphical information that includes the power plants, their generation capacity, amount of coal burned, Indiana mines supplying the coal to the power plants, and CO2 emissions. Data from power-generating facilities that burned natural gas, oil, and wood in 2012 are compared with data from 2004 and 2008; however, 2012 data is available only for industries and institutions. Indiana coal-related CO2 emissions from 2010 are compared to CO2 emissions from other states during the same time period.
