Increasing emphasis is being placed on the development of air pollution control technologies that allow for the continued use of coal while meeting the stringent requirements of the Clean Air Act Amendments. Meanwhile, air emissions standards testing has resulted in a re-evaluation of coal as a fuel sourcea the development of new technologies for reducing plant emissions. Research and development spending and government and industry regulation, as well as ongoing political considerations will drive growth in this complex market over the near term.
