Features

  • Discusses environmental problems caused by coal and coal combustion residues and their disposal problems
  • Emphasizes management of coal combustion residues in electric power plants and the influence of coal and associated residues on soils, plants, water, and animals
  • Provides information on the amount of fly ash generated by electric power utilities, the toxic pollutants in the ash, their effect on groundwater, and safe disposal of coal combustion residues
  • Summary

    Trace Elements in Coal and Coal Combustion Residues focuses on trace metal chemistry of coal and coal combustion residues. Special emphasis is placed on management of coal combustion residues in electric power plants and the influence of coal and associated residues on soils, plants, water, and animals. Topics covered include a brief summary of research sponsored by Electric Power Research Institute, environmental pollution from coal combustion plants in low-rainfall regions, accumulation of trace elements in freshwater mussels near a power plant, testing to evaluate fossil fuel wastes by chemicals and isotopes, transport of metals from coal piles and ash impoundments, leachability and toxicity of metals in fly ash, and plant absorption of chemicals from ash. The book will be a useful reference for environmental and reclamation consultants, environmental engineers, toxicologists, environmental regulatory personnel, officials with electric power utilities and water treatment plants, and soil scientists.
