Particulate matter smaller then 10 microns - associated with lung ailments.
CO2, Carbon Dioxide, is a normal atmospheric component. However, increased levels are likely to cause future climate changes.
Volatile Organic Compounds - One of the primary causes of ozone (smog), also some of the individual compounds are toxic.
Cooling Water Consumption
Because power plants are typically only about 36 percent efficient, they throw off an enormous amount of waste heat. This is typically dissipated by evaporating water, making power plants rather large water consumers.
