Rampal a coal based power plant, coal

Rampal power plant is a power station which will produce
electric energy. It is a coal based power plant which is located at Rampal in
Khulna district. It is 40 kilometers away from the Khulna city and only 14
kilometer away from the Sundarbans, the largest mangrove forest in the world
and also the world heritage site of Bangladesh recognized by the UNESCO in
1997. Now this is an age of digital world. Our government has taken steps to
digitalize every sectors including the information and technological sectors.
At the same time the most important thing that is need to improve every sectors
or develop our country, is energy. As a result this type of power plant will
accelerate our development as this will be able to generate
1320 megawatt electric energy. According to
Wikipedia, to build this project 70% of budget is expected from loan and 15% of
it will be given by India and other 15% will afford Bangladesh. As it is a coal
based power plant, coal will be used for generating the energy. By firing coal
heat will produced. This heat will flown into a large container of water. This
will convert the water into vapor. This vapor is flown with tremendous pressure
through a turbine. Thus the turbine turns using the vapor flow and electric
energy is generated.  The main
issue which makes all thoughtful that the distance from Sundarbans. At the same
time environment is in a risky position since the power station is based in firing
coal. Hence the power plant will burn almost 5 million tons of coal per year.
Resultantly enormous amount of wastages will have to remove. This is a big
challenge for Bangladesh. If it cannot be done in proper direction, a huge
environmental disaster will take place. But the other thing is that ashes and
sludge which will produce it is so dangerous for air. As Sundarbans is not far
away from Rampal, ashes and sludge will be another challenge.On the other hand a
good amount of liquid wastages will be drained to the river named Pshur besides
the power plant. As a result we will lose another thing of nature. Moreover a
lot of people will be deprived of drinking water, as they depend on the river.
Then the river will not suitable for the environment and also for Sundarbans
because it flows through the Sundarbans also. It is said that ships will be used
for bringing coal and to squeeze out the wastage, therefore the natural beauty
of that river, harmful for Sundarbans as well as. Toxic gases such as carbon
monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide threaten Sundarbans and air
surrounding. Though it has been said that high chimney will be used to remove
it, still it will not be possible to stop acid rain, air pollution, temperature
rising etc. 

The people
of Bangladesh are at the opposite side. They have protested already. Moreover,
as India will provide things and budget, the people of India protest and they
do not want that help from India as this become an environmental issue and risk
for Sundarbans as well as. Today we are in that stage that we all depend on
more energy, therefore power station is important. But the place of power plant
is not suitable. Therefore if the place is changed, that will be a good
solution for our natural beauty, Sundarbans, world heritage site.
