Abstract: Operation of coal thermal power plants (TPP) has the most destructive influence for environment mainly from GHG emission and other pollution for water and soil. Coal combustion is the process which influence with emission of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur dioxide (SO2), as well as PM and ash. The dominant power plant in Macedonia is lignite fired TPP Bitola with 3 units, each of 225MW installed power, or total 675 MW, and TPP Oslomej with one unit of 120 MW. The lignite consumption in Bitola is 300 t/h for one unit and 200 t/h for the unit in Oslomej. The other TPP is Negotino which is oil fired with installed power of 210 MW. Also the new gas power plants start to operate this year. The total production from thermal power units in Macedonia is near 5000 GWh in a year which covers almost 70% of the electricity demand in Macedonia. The paper presents the emission of the gases through chimney from TPPs in Macedonia mainly the concentration near the plants. The measured values will be comparing with the theoretical calculations made based on chemical content of the fuel as well based on technology for electricity production.
