WHAT IT SHOWS: A technician directs a machine used to unload coal from a barge docked at the Torrevaldaliga Nord power station's jetty. The coal is moved by conveyer belt directly into storage at the power station. Torrevaldaliga Nord is said to be the world's least polluting coal-fired power station. It is one of the most innovative and modern plants in the world, emitting less greenhouse gas than other coal-fired stations, as well as the oil-fired plant it was converted from.
