	  abstract     = {Benchmarking cleaner production performance is an
effective way of pollution control and emission reduction in coal-fired
power industry. A benchmarking method using two-stage
super-efficiency data envelopment analysis for coal-fired power plants
is proposed – firstly, to improve the cleaner production performance of
DEA-inefficient or weakly DEA-efficient plants, then to select the
benchmark from performance-improved power plants. An empirical
study is carried out with the survey data of 24 coal-fired power plants.
The result shows that in the first stage the performance of 16 plants is
DEA-efficient and that of 8 plants is relatively inefficient. The target
values for improving DEA-inefficient plants are acquired by
projection analysis. The efficient performance of 24 power plants and
the benchmarking plant is achieved in the second stage. The two-stage
benchmarking method is practical to select the optimal benchmark in
the cleaner production of coal-fired power industry and will
continuously improve plants- cleaner production performance.},
