This report, including 10 appendices, gives results of: (1) an analysis of representative samples of fluidized-bed combustion (FBC) wastes, (2) an assessment of the characteristics of leachates generated from the wastes under laboratory and field (landfill) conditions, (3) a characterization of the attenuation of the leachates by earth materials that are typical of disposal settings, (4) development of a way to predict the leachate generation behavior of FBC wastes under landfill conditions on the basis of laboratory test results by establishing a rigorous statistical relationship between the laboratory and field leaching results, and (5) assessment of the compatibility of commonly used landfill liner materials with FBC waste leachates. FBC is an emerging energy technology that holds promise for both high efficiency of energy conversion and minimization of adverse air quality impacts. A major advantage of FBC is that high-sulfur coal can be burned without the use of flue gas desulfurization equipment to meet air quality standards. The solid residues that are generated in an FBC unit are usually larger in volume and have different properties than the typical bottom ash from a conventional boiler.
