Environmental Aspects of Natural Gas—Current State of Science, Knowledge Gaps and Opportunities for Future Research
This report discusses the current state of knowledge on environmental issues associated with the entire natural gas value chain; knowledge gaps; and potential research projects on various topics such as emissions and air quality, water quality and availability, seismic issues, ecological impacts, and human health impacts.
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.
