Fairbanks area power plants produce little air pollution

From The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Sunday, December 6, 2009:

A study of emissions from the Fairbanks area’s three power plants finds the plants, the most visible polluters, are a minor player when it comes to Fairbanks’ pollution problems.

“They are a contributor, of course they are, but they are not the main one,” said Nicole Mölders, chairwoman of the atmospheric sciences department at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Mölders began studying power plant emissions last winter using mathematical models. She said her findings are preliminary. The final results will be published late next year.
