Pollution from thermal power plants harmful emissions from coal fired power plant energy power plants by johnzactruba mechanical engineering carbon dioxide co2 co 2 was thought of as a product of combustion and not as a pollutant. Causes of thermal pollution 1 water as cooling agent in power manufacturing and industrial plants production and manufacturing plants are biggest source of thermal pollution these plants draw water from nearby source to keep machines cool and then release back to the source with higher temperature. Thermal pollution is the degradation of water quality by any process that changes ambient water temperature a common cause of thermal pollution is the use of water as a coolant by power plants and industrial manufacturers when water used as a coolant is returned to the natural environment at a higher temperature the change in temperature impacts organisms by a decreasing oxygen supply . Therefore romania violates the european legislation in the field in 2017 the ec sent to romania a letter of formal notice as 4 thermal power plants were operating without integrated environmental permit in fact the issue of authorizations for these thermal power plants was not possible since the pollution reduction technologies were missing
