Alcoa Anglesea monitors and reports on a range of emissions to air including sulphur dioxide, dust and particulate and greenhouse gases.
 
The Environment Improvement Plan outlines Alcoa Anglesea’s approach and strategy for management of emissions to air.

Alcoa Anglesea continues to monitor and work on Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) management as part of the daily operation of the power station. SO2 is an air emission released from the station’s stack that is created when the Anglesea brown coal is burnt in the power station as the coal contains sulphur. This emission is one of our biggest priorities and much work has been done in this area.
