As Europe continues to struggle through a major heat wave, French energy giant Electricite de France SA (EPA:EDF) (Paris, France) in a precautionary move has temporarily idled four of its nuclear reactors. The four reactors in three power plants near the Rhine and the Rhone rivers, including Fessenheim, have had to be idled to avoid overheating the rivers. Nuclear power plants utilize water from the rivers to cool down the temperatures of their reactors before sending the water back into the rivers. Rivers that are unusually warm can experience mass fish die-offs, which has happened in Germany in recent days.

In fulfilling its pledge to the Paris Climate Accord, the Indian government has introduced stringent new standards to regulate nitrogen oxide (NOX), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and particulate matter emissions from coal-fired power plants. However, most power plants likely will miss the revised deadlines for complying with the stricter air-pollution emission norms. The initial deadline for power stations to adhere to the new NOX and SO2 norms was December 2017, but 400 power plants that were to be retrofitted with modern flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) units, electrostatic precipitators (ESP), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) equipment failed to meet the revised standards. Industrial info is tracking numerous projects involving FGD, ESP and SCR/SNCR installations in the country.
