The sun is the main natural resource of energy, other than this; Thermal Power Energy is a major source of energy as well as a kind of polluting agency of the environment. As far as power generation/electrical energy is concerned coal is the most economic fuel that is easily available after mining for power generation, in this way we can say that coal is the major source for the generation of electrical energy in India. Coal produced in India is utilized for power generation nearly two third of the coal used for power generation have high ash content, as high as 40% and sometimes even more, with generates huge quantity of particulate matters in the form of fly ash and bottom ash as well as gaseous pollutants like, SO2, NOx, CO, etc. To estimate the amount of pollution level in and around Chandrapura Thermal Power Station (CTPS), ambient air monitoring studies were carried out with respect to SPM, SO2 and NOx. This paper deals, in brief, with equipment used, field study, laboratory analysis with respect to ambient air study and discusses the result of the case study.
