It air Bill could Benefit Eastern Kentucky by Ann rockers staff writer a clean air Bill under consideration by Congress could mean More jobs and cleaner air for Eastern Kentucky but a decline in employment for Western Kent culty. Kentucky senators Wendell Ford and Mitch Mcconnell voted for the clean sir Bill which is designed to control the air pollution emitted from factories cars and Power plants. It recently passed in the Senate 89-11. In a press release last week. Mcconnell said although the clean air Bill is a far from perfect Quot it should a minimize the economic Impact on Many of Kentuck res other industries like autos and one provision of the Bill that directly affects a Coal producing regions requires a reduction in suffer dioxide emissions from Coal burning Utility plants. According to environmentalist or. Bob Swanson of Barbourville As Coal bums into the air so does Fulfur. The Fulfur mixed with oxygen causes a diluted form of sul uric acid a major cause of acid rain he said. If passed by Congress the clean air Bill would Cut Down on Fulfur in the atmosphere thereby cutting Down on acid rain Swanson said. A method of controlling the Fulfur dioxide is a problem that has plagued lawmakers geologists and environmentalists offering no simple or a next enslave answer said Jim Cobb of the Kent culty geological society. According to Cobb Eastern Kentucky Coal has a relatively Low Fulfur Content in its main Coal seams. The Region also has a Large amount of Blue Gem Coal considered to be the Best. Western Ken to City a two main Coal seams have a High Fulfur Content he said. Therefore it would be economically beneficial to Eastern Kent culty if the clean air Bill required Power plants to Only buy Low Fulfur Coal. Swanson said. This would increase jobs and make the Coal More valuable. Western Kentucky Coal companies however would be forced to close mines or use an expensive a is cobbing Quot process to remove the Fulfur from their Coal. Cobb said. The scrubbing process turned Down by the Senate is done by burning Coal and running the Gas through Limestone creating a Large Deposit of Gypsum. Cobb said. This Deposit can be burled in a Landfill but if it is not monitored properly can leak out and cause environment cd dam Cige. Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia suggested training and compensation for those miners who could lose their jobs As a result of the Bill. The Senate did no to approve that proposal.
