The Eskom plant at Kriel in the Eastern Transvaal is now the power plant that causes the second most air pollution with sulfur dioxide.
The eastern Transvaal countryside is suffering from the huge air pollution caused by Eskom’s coal power plants, of which the Kriel plant is one of the biggest scapegoats.
The details of Kriel were only released after a thorough study on the pollution caused by power plants.
According to the report, Kriel is now the world’s second largest polluter with SO2 making the environment an extremely unhealthy place.
The Nasa satellite system has been used to check the world’s polluted points and according to the report, Kriel is a major polluter, and the Eastern Transvaal, with its numerous power plants, is an area severely harmed by the pollution.
