Leachates from Solid Waste Recovery Operations
Conversion of urban solid waste to energy often produces solid residues that require subsequent disposal. Generally they are placed in ash ponds, spread on land, or placed in sanitary...

Fly Ash Sulfur Concrete
Two waste products, fly ash and elemental sulfur, can be combined with a modifying agent to produce a potentially useful construction material, fly ash sulfur concrete (FASC). Production...

Wet Disposal of Fossil Plant Waste Case History
Fossil fueled electric generating plants produce large volumes of solid waste in the form of fly ash, bottom ash, and depending on the coal burned, SO2...

Mount St. Helens Eruption—Impact and Civil Engineering Response
The May 18 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington state, estimated to have the energy equivalent of a 20 to 50 megaton atom bomb, did tremendous damage. It destroyed an estimated 160...

Containment of Heavy Metals with Natural Materials

Metal Removal from Coal Ashes and Wastes

Processes to Increase Utilization of Power Solid Wastes

Review: Reuse, Recycle, and Utilization Session

Environmental Research Needs for Fluidized Bed Combustion Residues

Characterization of Lime-Fly Ash Concrete Pavement under Load
This study reports the stress-deformation characteristics of adequately matured lime-fly ash concrete pavement laid to a model scale over a realistic soil subgrade and subjected to static...

Characteristics of Stabilized Scrubber Sludges
Fly ash, lime, and silica were added to sludge from lime scrubbing process to improve handling and stabilization of sludge for disposal. The addition of fly ash alone does not improve...
