Greenpeace’s updated analysis of a full year of TROPOMI NO2 satellite data and other scientific datasets confirms that the coal-fired power plant and industrial cluster in Mpumalanga is the world’s worst hotspot for power plant NO2 and SO2 emissions, and overall ranks 4th for NO2 and 3rd for SO2 emissions in the world. It is the only place in the world that ranks among the top five for both of these dangerous pollutants. The finding is corroborated by analyses by NASA, Netherlands meteorological institute KNMI and Eskom’s own published emissions data.
