AGL has a portfolio of power generation plants, many of which operate via the combustion of fuels. This process results in the emission of combustion products to the atmosphere. AGL’s gas production and storage assets also produce emissions to air.
Emissions to air from our operations can potentially contribute to regional airshed environmental issues, so it is important that our operations run efficiently and within the parameters set by regulatory licences. Undertaking regular maintenance helps keep equipment running efficiently and AGL monitors emissions to verify compliance with regulatory requirements.
Air emissions are reported to the Federal Government’s National Pollutant Inventory (NPI) each year. The NPI is a publicly available database of emissions from Australian industrial facilities.
