ABSTRACT
The article highlights the findings of a Credit Suisse report released on September 23, 2010, which revealed that the plans of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce power plant emissions will result in the closing of almost 18 percent of the country's coal-fire generation plants. Furthermore, the strategy of EPA will reportedly reduce the demand for steam coal by 15-31 percent as well as increase the demand for natural gas by 8 to 16 percent. Also noted are pending rules for reduction of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions.
