prof. Dr. Mustafa Öztürk, regarding the fire that spread to Kemerköy Thermal Power Plant in Milas, said, “The gases formed as a result of the random combustion of coal are deadly. Local people should be warned," he said.
Former Deputy Undersecretary for Environment and Deputy of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry Prof. Dr. Mustafa Öztürk warned about the toxic gases that will emerge with the burning of Kemerköy Thermal Power Plant in Milas.
Making a statement on his social media account, Öztürk emphasized that citizens and officials in the vicinity should not breathe the air, and that they should wear an activated carbon mask.
Öztürk's explanations are as follows: If the thermal power plant burns, serious pollutants such as SO2, CO, PM2.5, PM10 are released as a result of the random combustion of the coal in the facility. The gases that will be dragged from the thermal power plant by the wind are poisonous. Let's keep the windows closed and not leave the house.
The amount of coal stock in the thermal power plant is very important. As the amount of coal increases, the risk of air pollution becomes very, very risky. PM10, SO2, CO, NO2 pollutants should be measured instantaneously in the prevailing wind direction in this region. Please keep the windows closed, never go out
It is claimed that the thermal power plant has 40 thousand tons of coal stock. If this is true, air pollution occurs in the region, which is very risky for human health. Pollutants to be formed as a result of random combustion of coal are PM10, SO2, CO, NO2 pollutants. These pollutants are very dangerous for health
As a result of the random combustion of coal in the thermal power plant stock, very very dangerous pollutants for health are formed in the prevailing wind direction. Local people should be warned about air pollution.
Journalists making programs in the region should stay away from the prevailing wind direction and wear active carbon masks. The gases formed as a result of the random combustion of coal are very, very dangerous for health.
Power plant extinguishing is a job that requires a lot of expertise. It is especially important to use a mask with activated carbon. The gases produced by the random (uncontrolled) combustion of coal are deadly. (Turkeytourism)
