The report describes the initial phase of a study: to identify potential environmental problems that may be associated with sludge disposal from non-regenerable power plant flue gas desulfurization systems; to assess potential methods for sludge disposal; to assess technologies and attendant economics for eliminating or minimizing potential environmental problems related to sludge disposal; and to make recommendations for sludge disposal. It includes the following results: laboratory chemical and physical analyses of limestone sludges from two plants, one burning eastern coal and the other, western; a review of power plant sludge production and disposal plans; a survey of pond lining techniques and economics; technical and economic surveys of sludge chemical fixation processes which treat the sludge to produce a suitable landfill material; and a review of water quality and solid waste management regulations.
