Power plants monitored

LOCAL power authorities said all smokestacks of the city's power plants will have PM2.5 discharge monitors installed this year.

Shanghai has 11 big power plants with 27 coal-fired units. Coal burning is a key of source of PM2.5 pollutants. To encourage plants to update equipment and use better technology, those with lower PM2.5 discharges will have preference in selling electricity when demand drops.
