How much carbon does a coal plant produce in one day?

    That really depends on the plant (how large it is and how much power it neeeds to generate), when it was built, and where it’s located. Some countries have much lower emissions standards than others, and in the US, plants built before 1970 are exempt from the clean air act. The Robert W. Scherer Power Plant is the single largest point-source of CO2 in the U.S., releasing 27 million tons of CO2 annually, or nearly 74,000 tons a day. Many plants release significantly less CO2.
