Resumen del proyecto:

The project focuses on three main topics:

a) The assessment of the environmental characteristics of all the solid residues (ash, slag or FGD gypsum) produced in power plants burning coal alone or coal combined with other secondary fuel, taking into account the 2003/33/CE Directive on waste disposal recently put in force. According to this standard, the classification of several combustion by-products traditionally treated (disposed) as an inert or non-hazardous waste or with industrial applications in many EU member states, will have to be revised;

b) The evaluation of the abatement capacity for trace pollutant emissions of wet FGD facilities, also trying new additives, and c) the leachability of these pollutants from the end by-product, studying if necessary possible remediation actions in order to facilitate the reuse of the FGD gypsum. The study is carried out in several EU power plants under (co-) combustion strategies equipped with FGD facilities. In addition, the project can also be useful in relation to the advent of new emission regulations in coal power plants.
