NRG Texas Power LLC has re-applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of air permits that would authorize construction of the Chocolate Bayou Steam Generating Station, located two miles south of the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 2917 and Farm-to-Market Road 2004 at Alvin in Brazoria County, Texas.
The TCEQ said in a May 13 public notice that this facility will emit the following air contaminants: particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, organic compounds, and sulfuric acid. The proposed facility will also emit greenhouse gases.
These applications were submitted to the TCEQ in August 2014 and again on May 11. The TCEQ did not, in the notice, make any details available on the project.
