Flue gas cleaning waste treatment, utilization, and disposal, as well as water reuse technology for coal-fired utility power plants are discussed. Significant areas treated include: coal-pile drainage; ash characterization and disposal; chemical and physical properties and leaching characteristics of treated and untreated flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastes; field evaluations of treated and untreated waste disposal; physical and chemical properties of gypsum produced from FGD systems; cost estimates for producing and disposing of FGD gypsum; potential use of FGD wastes in fertilizer production; the economics of alumina production; and power plant water recycle, treatment, and reuse.
