Prior laboratory research has indicated that applying flue gas desulfurization gypsum (a byproduct of power plant emissions controls) to agricultural fields can reduce phosphorus runoff. Between 2006 and 2015, EPRI and The Ohio State University evaluated the potential for soil, water, and plant quality impacts associated with application of flue gas desulfurization gypsum on field […]
Flue Gas Desulfurization Gypsum as a Soil Amendment for Phosphorus Reduction in Agricultural Drainage: Ohio Field-Scale and Plot-Scale Studies
Laboratory research has indicated that applying flue gas desulfurization gypsum (a by-product of power plant scrubbers) to agricultural fields can reduce phosphorus runoff. In this study, EPRI measured the effectiveness of gypsum at working farms, applying it on eight Ohio farms and monitoring phosphorus concentrations in edge-of-field drainage over three years.
Water Saving Technologies and Strategies for Sectors Other than Electric Power: Agricultural, Public, and Industrial Applications
This research investigates the advantages, disadvantages, relative costs, and relative water conservation potential of water-saving technologies and strategies used in the agricultural, public, and industrial sectors. It is intended for electric power industry managers and engineers who want to reduce water use at their facilities and learn more about water savings potential in other sectors.
