This proposed revision would include TransAlta's updated 2020 permit for best available retrofit technology (BART) in the State Implementation Plan and remove the previous permit. The updated permit limits nitrogen oxides and ammonia oxides.

TransAlta is a coal-fired power plant in Centralia. In 2011, the Legislature required TransAlta to shut down its coal-fired boilers in two phases. Ecology regulates air pollution from industrial facilities, including power plants. We monitor TransAlta's emissions.
