Funding: Indiana University - Indiana Geological & Water Survey
Issue: Emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the combustion of coal and other fossil fuels are of great concern in the evaluation of greenhouse gases and their control.
Objective: Provide major point sources of CO2 emissions from coal in Indiana (map and tabular data), including coal-burning electric power plants and industries and institutions.
Approach: The publication will contain data on CO2 emission from coal-burning electric power plants and industries and institutions. In addition the project provides graphs of CO2 emissions by source, CO2 emission from coal by all US states, and a map of coal burning power plants in USA.
Products: This project is an update of IGS Open File Study 07-01 and 09-09. The form of the publication is being discussed (poster or online application).
Benefits: These data are important for regional emission evaluations and can be used by the public, industry, and state and federal governments.
