Steam power plants, coal-fired power plants, waste incineration facilities

In steam power plants, the thermal energy contained in water vapour is used to power a steam turbine which in turn drives the generator. In the process, conventional fuels such as oil, natural gas, hard coal or brown coal are used to fire the steam boiler. In coal-fired power plants, coal is the only fuel used, whereas waste incineration facilities can also use treated waste in order to generate electricity.
