    Which type of pollution can be controlled by super critical and ultra-super critical (USC) technologies?

    A) Water pollution  

    B) \[C{{O}_{2}}\]emission

    C) Radioactive emission      

    D) None

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    Super critical and ultra-super critical (USC) technologies are capable of substantially reducing \[C{{O}_{2}}\] emissions and virtually eliminate PM emissions. It requires less coal per megawatt-hour, leading to lower emissions (including carbon dioxide), higher efficiency and lower fuel costs per megawatt. These technologies are not used in nuclear power stations.
