It found that the lax emissions standards in the host countries for dangerous air pollutants allowed these plants to emit up to 18.6 times more nitrogen oxides (NOx), 11.5 times more sulfur dioxide (SO2) and 33 times more dust pollution than plants in South Korea. “The burning of coal releases pollutant particles that penetrate into our cells, damaging every organ in our body, causing everything from dementia to harming unborn children,” said Tata Mustasya, climate and energy campaigner for Greenpeace Southeast Asia. “Coal is also the single worst contributor to the global climate crisis.” Air quality in Bangladesh, Vietnam and Indonesia already ranks as some of the most polluted in the world, and the operation of these coal plants serves only to exacerbate the problem, according to the report.
