Coal Combustion Residual Characterization for Beneficial Use

Ross Gorman, The SEFA Group, LLC

Description

Coal Combustion Residual Characterization for Beneficial Use Authors Mr. Jimmy Knowles - United States - The SEFA Group, LLC Abstract Characterization of coal ash impoundments is a critical early step for a successful harvesting and beneficiation project. Thorough characterization of a CCR impoundment is necessary to determine the material's suitability for beneficial use. It is also necessary to determine which type of beneficiation is required and the design specifications of the beneficiation technology system. Pond or Basin Characterization is vital to design a safe harvesting or excavation plan that optimizes beneficiation and use of the material in the impoundment. This presentation will discuss strategies for a successful pond characterization. It will look at specific characteristics that are important for coal ash beneficiation. Also, it will show tools to model and interpret the data generated during a characterization project. Finally, it will discuss how changing standards related to coal ash utilization can change the requirements of characterization.
