The two largest forms of solid waste from coal-fired generation are coal ash (from the combustion of coal), and “scrubber” slurry (from environmental controls at the plant). Collectively, these two wastes are called coal combustion residues, or CCRs. CCRs are the second most abundant waste material in the United States, after household waste.

The major assumptions concerning future energy demand, economic conditions, and government regulations used to derive the estimates in the IGF study are presented in Attachment B-l to this Appendix. 2 Arthur D.

Nationwide data of the emissions from waste-to-energy and coal-fired power plants are compared. The emissions of sulfur dioxide and hydrogen chloride, particulate matter, nitrogen oxides and trace. In the field of electricity generation technologies, meta-analyses were conducted and harmonization approaches were developed for first-and second-generation PVs [11,12], concentrating solar power.

Waste coals are the low-energy-value discards of the coal mining industry. Waste coal is called "culm" in the eastern Pennsylvania anthracite coal region and "gob" or "boney" in the bitiminous coal mining regions (western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and elsewhere).

There are18 waste coal burning power plants, and 13 more that use it as a secondary fuel, with bituminous coal as their primary fuel. Fourteen of the 18 waste coal plants are in PA, 3 are in WV and one is in UT. New ones have been proposed in PA, WV, KY, IN, IL, CO and VA.
