The report presents results of a study of technology for disposal of sludge created by lime and limestone flue gas desulfurization systems at steam-electric power plants. Effects of operating variables on the volume of sludge produced are explained with emphasis on plant situations in the state of Ohio. Properties of sludges are reviewed, including settling characteristics, rewatering tendency, strength, particle size, bulk density, and chemical composition. The report considers potential environmental hazards of sludge disposal, namely contamination of water and ground water supplies. Methods of avoiding these hazards are presented and evaluated. Technologies for solidifying (fixating) sludge are discussed and evaluated along with the current status of full-scale projects. The report concludes that any large degree of commercial utilization is unlikely. Based on available data, there are no insurmountable problems in disposing of sludge in an environmentally acceptable manner. (Modified author abstract)
