Our class has been studying the emissions from natural gas burning machines and we need some data on the emissions from the natural gas "scrubbing plants" in northern Canada. How much sulphur dioxide, heavy metals, etc. are "dumped " into the environment (we know they are considerable) before this "clean" fuel gets down here to the main market?

Perhaps British Columbia or the National Government have a bureau for monitoring and regulating these emissions. Try contacting them through a University research library near you.
