    The leading part of the energy sources used all over the world consists of fossil fuel such as coal and heavy oil. When any kind of the fossil fuel is converted into energy, it always generates nitrogen oxide (NOx), dust and sulfur oxide (SOx), all of which cause air pollution.

    Japan has experience of that various types of bronchus-related disease including asthma were caused by air pollution in areas dense with factories during 1960s. In those days, there were not enough air pollution control equipment in the country.Facing the problem, the Japanese Government established Air Pollution Control Law in the '70s. This movement rapidly developed air pollution control technology. Since then, more and more air pollution control systems have been introduced in plants in earnest.

    The following shows the typical flue gas treatment system for coal-fired boilers currently used in Japan:

  • 5Electricity pricing:

    Electricity rates in Japan are based on the average cost of supplying electricity. This method, The Total Cost of Services Method, is stipulated in Article 19 of the Electricity Utilities Industry Law. The article provides that general power utilities draw up a supply contract, including electricity rates, and obtain authorization of the Central Government such as METI.

    The contract will be authorized if the METI thinks it reflects proper costs, based on efficient business management, plus fair return. Proper costs are calculated by adding up expenses for personnel, fuel, maintenance, and depreciation, as well as costs for wastewater treatment, exhaust gas treatment, and other environmental measures. Fair return is calculated on the Rate Base Method by multiplying business assets invested (including facilities for generation, transmission, and distribution) by a certain rate of return. Adding up the above-mentioned costs and remuneration and deducting the target figure for management effort gives the total cost, which is used as the basis for calculating electricity rates.

    The cost calculation method allows electric power companies to take necessary measures to protect the environment and pass on the costs to consumers, thus recovering the environmental cost of power generation. Although this system tends to drive up the electricity price in Japan (it is higher than in other countries), it was Japans choice to spend more on environmental protection and energy security.



    Government Subsidies for Environmental MeasuresThe biggest problem implementing environmental measures is economic.Environmental equipment requires large amounts of initial investment and funding, and operating, and operating the equipment requires power to run the devices and expendable supplies like treatment chemicals. Power generation itself requires large amounts of capital investment, and additional investment significantly burdens companies. Electric power companies must be socially responsible and take environmental measures while meeting their responsibility to provide a steady supply of energy at an affordable price.

    The government has introduced assistance programs to relive the financial burden and to give business the incentive to protect the environment. Following are the main efforts by the government to support environmental measures in the electric power industry: (1) a low-interest-rate loan program through the Japan Development Bank for pollution control facilities, energy efficiency enhancement facilities, and recycling facilities; (2) preferential tax treatment through accelerated depreciation of equipment for environmental measures, reduction or exemption of fixed property taxes related to environmental facilities, and tax deductions on energy-saving technology R&D; and (3) subsidy for R&D of environment-friendly technology.

  • 9Why is the Monitoring of SOx, NOx etc necessary?

    It affects the Human healthand is also a substance causing Acid Rain

    Air polluted by NOx causes disease of Human respiratory organs(Nose, throat and breast hurt, breath difficulty, cough, sputum)

    Photochemical Oxidant arises by the photochemical reaction, and it cause not only bad influence to Human membrane and breath, but also affects Plant Growth (Agricultural products).

    SPM sticks to Human respiratory tract and lungs, and causes a Respiratory-organs disease
