The new 565 foot stack at the Indianapolis Power and Light E. I. Stout generating station on a very cold January day.

The new Flue gas desulphurization system (FGS), also known as a scrubber, and this stack are expected to reduce sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions by 97%, and NOx emissions by some 87% as well as other pollutants.

The process adds moisture to the flue gasses, so on a cold day, the impressive condensation cloud from the stack and the cooling towers can be seen for miles.
