This study addresses the problem of flue gas cleaning (FGC) sludge disposal to the land. It considers the problem from a potential regulatory approach, looking at the various aspects which could play a part in determining the best practical control technology currently available. Factors that were taken into consideration include: (1) the origin of the FGC sludge problem (character of the fuel, combustion process, gas cleaning and sludge management); (2) criteria for the evaluation of sludge disposal options (sludge characteristics, health, ecological, safety, and aesthetic considerations); (3) applicable, existing or proposed standards/regulations (solid waste, hazardous waste, drinking water, and air pollution regulations); and (4) impacts of applying existing standards/regulations to the disposal of flue gas cleaning sludges (cost aspects). The report presents 14 conclusions supporting the need for FGC sludge disposal regulations and suggests a decision tree approach to the formulation of guidelines and limitations for FGC sludge management which takes into account site specific geographical and hydrological considerations. The report contains 179 references and an Appendix on The Equations of Mass Transport.
