Background

The Taiyuan Steel Mill power station was proposed to aid with the Taiyuan Iron & Steel Group's operation; the plant was designed to fuel the production of 1.5 million tonnes of steel per year. The total investment of the project was 284.5 million RMB, and it was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission in 2007.[1] In 2008, the plant was sold to Shanxi Taigang Stainless Steel Co. Ltd.[2] In 2010, both 600 MW units were commissioned; combined, they have an annual power generation capacity of 1.525 billion kWh.[1][3]

After some changes to the initial construction plan were made by the Taiyuan Iron & Steel group in 2010, the Chinese Ministry of Environment and Ecology mandated that new emissions control technology would be added to the power plant and its complementary sintering machine. These included speeding up the implementation of desulfurization, denitration and dust removal systems and eliminating over 100 small furnaces to improve the pollution of the plant.[4]
