6 © 2003 Reliant 5 Seward – How Pollution Control Technology SNCR – NOx Limestone/FDA – SO 2 Baghouse Fuel – Barn and Covered Conveyors ~ 3.5M tons per year refuse Seward CFB Schematic

7 © 2003 Reliant 6 Seward – Air Emissions NOx – Down 74% CFB low temperatures Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) SO2 – Reduced 85% Limestone injection FDA – Flash Dry Absorber Particulate Matter – Down 90% Fabric filter (baghouse) Enclosed fuel storage

8 © 2003 Reliant 7 Seward – Generating Capacity Generating capacity increases 2-1/2 times Energy production will increase even more New plant should run as “baseload” (~ 24/7)

9 © 2003 Reliant 8 Seward – Future Challenges Hg GHG Holistic – multi-faceted approach to energy Manufacture Consumption
