When we talk about making coal plants better for the environment, the best thing to do is reduce their emissions. Carbon itself isn’t “bad” for the environment because it is a naturally occuring element. The reason governments are cracking down on carbon emissions is because of its role as a greenhouse gas, which is what is believed to be the cause of climate change.
Coal plants actually release a lot more than just carbon dioxide into the environment. They also emit sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and mercury. While nitrogen oxide is another greenhouse gas, sulfur dioxide is actually one of the components of smog, but you can see why that’s not much better for the environment either.
