BTW, bar tab has no affiliation or association with any engineering comany or person at Baldwin. Then you bring the conspiracy theorists "They KILL r kids 4 money" into it about the ash. Seriously, the reason that they bought up the areas by the plant is because of wanting to put long term ash storage in place to allow the plant to have a good long term operational plan.
You guys really need to move out of mom's basement and go to Chicago. You would fit right in with the other nuts that have no grasp on reality.

As a project manager - it's obvious they only trusted you to wire a indicator light. They wouldn't trust a moron to wire anything critical.

First, there are so many chemical reactions that are done to the exhaust gas as it goes from the boiler to the stack that pretty well every pollutant is taken out of the exhaust.
Second there are multiple layers of "filters" that take the dust out of the air and then either reuse it, or send it to the ash field.
Third, all the talk about dirty, polluted, and filthy byproducts is the same material that allows the binding to be cheaper and stronger in concrete. It is mixed in asphalt to make it stronger. It is given to most of the local communities for grit on the road during the snows to keep you safe driving,
Fourth, the agreements that Baldwin has with local communities (Red Bud especially) allows for the community to have a lot of extra income to pay for amnenities that most wouldn't afford.
Fifth, The amount of "local" workers in this plant is close to 80%. Those are folks from the area working here at their home.
You P.O.S.'s that spew hate and rhetoric have no idea how much that plant has given to the community, and after they have put in close to a billion dollars (mandated through government) which stimulated the economy locally 30 times more than the installation of the shooting complex you still want to badmouth it.
Get the hell out of Southern Illinois and go to Chicago where you belong. You can chase jobs out of there all you want and fit right in, but don't sit in my house and my community and incite problems that can hurt my friends, family, and community for a generation.
so are they still using the old three stacks with the new fgd or are they building a new one

slikkk,
sorry, didn't get to see this response. They are still using the same three stacks, but they tied in the ductwork in a different route. Basically, it comes out of the SCR's (on 1&2) turns to the scrubbers, boosted by new fans is pulled through a full scrubbing system and then sent to the stack. U3 goes through the same process but doesn't have the SCR's.

This is the most ignorant, pathetic, dribble I have ever read. It appears you are hoping to get paid to prevent spewing your insidious poison. The upgrades at the Baldwin Plant are genuine, and the pollution reduction is verifiable and documented. People like you should be shipped to Russia where you will be held in check and treated as you should. This would be subversive, ignorant, morons.

Hello I was possibly interested in a security position there. But I am unsure where to apply. I have not seen anything on the internet career based tied to their website. Any information would be helpful thank you

Your "house"?? F*%$ YOU! Both my grand parents had cancer. My mother died from cancer. My wife had it and guess what. The doctors all said they didn't know why they got it maybe it was "something" in the "environment". They lived here their entire lives you POS!! They filter that shit out for a reason! IT is TOXIC at high levels! It is a concentrated material! Coal naturally contains mercury and when you burn it the mercury gets concentrated in the ash. Then they pile up the ash in huge impoundments and the toxins LEECH out into the surrounding environment! WE have to live here too you ignorant scum! It looks like a big scam. It is "filtered" out then allowed to blow all over the place at GROUND LEVEL! That is why they have those stacks right? Because it suppose to be "safer" if it is injected at a higher level so the wind can dissipate it before it has a chance to get to ground level. Yet it is allowed to blow all over the place when handled across the road! Not to mention the material that drops off the trucks or blows off the trucks when the go down the road. I have even seen globs of it along the road blowing all over the environment! Handle the material right or shut the whole place DOWN!!

oh boo waaaah everything gives someone cancer you conspiracy theorist. Why don't you move to some secluded little island live off of environmentally friendly energy and continue getting cancer from the sun. That's right darling the UV RADIATION IS GONNA GIVE YOU CANCER. Cancer has been found in corpses dating back HUNDREDS of years. Did they live and rely on fossil fuels then as well? Please inform me of how this power plant affected your family before it was built or updated whatever. Also do us all a favor and quit spewing nonsense and hate to the population the government does that for us enough.

"Coal ash is the by product of burning coal for power. It contains cancer-causing chemicals like arsenic and mercury, and itÂ’s the second-largest form of waste in the United States.

Energy companies for decades put coal ash into usually unlined ditches before filling these so-called ponds with water. This technique was considered the most economic way to store ash while keeping it from blowing away. But following the federal Coal Combustion Residuals rules, new coal ash pits must now be lined, while hundreds of old, unlined pits must be cleaned up if they are found to be polluting groundwater, or if they are attached to an active power plant."
