The report reviews the environmental aspects of fluidized-bed combustion (FBC) with respect to environmental media and specific pollutants. Emissions data indicate that FBC technology is a viable alternative to conventional coal combustion. Adverse impacts on health or the environment appear to be minimal; at worst, they are no different than for conventional coal combustion systems. To support this conclusion, specific results of FBC sampling and analysis from work performed through late 1979 are discussed.
