This report surveyed and categorized emerging and commercially available ‘beneficiation’ technologies, which are used to process coal combustion products to meet specifications for various beneficial uses in construction, manufacturing, agriculture, and other industries. Researchers focused on assessing limitations of carbon reduction technologies that enable use of fly ash in concrete. Drawing on vendor data and […]
Inspections of coal combustion product ponds and landfills typically involve labor-intensive walk-throughs to look for visual evidence of conditions that could compromise the facility’s performance. This new research project examines the use of drones for these inspections.
Environmental Considerations for Coal Combustion Product Harvesting from Landfills and Surface Impoundments
Power companies are exploring technologies to recover and beneficially use coal combustion products stored in surface impoundments and landfills. This report investigates relevant environmental issues, including potential groundwater, surface water, air quality, energy, and safety impacts.
