  • EU call for regulation of wood ash fertilisers

    Wood ash may not be an ideal fertiliser for the forest after all, according to new research, which found high natural levels of toxic trace elements in wood ash. In addition, the study showed that adding wood ash could affect the forest soils in such a way that toxic elements are more rapidly released into the receiving waters. Wood ash is a by-product of wood burning which is classed as a form ...

  • Coal-ash waste poses risk across the nation

    The billion-gallon wave of toxic coal-ash sludge that burst from a power-plant retention pond and buried 300 acres of rural Tennessee hints at a far larger problem: hundreds of similar threats nationwide. More than 1,300 coal-ash waste sites are dotted across the United States, about half of them actively used, federal data show. Some are landfills. The rest are 'surface impoundments' (storage ...

  • EPA Announces First National Regulations to Safeguard Disposal of Coal Ash

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced the first national regulations to provide for the safe disposal of coal combustion residuals (coal ash) from coal-fired power plants. The final rule establishes safeguards to protect communities from coal ash impoundment failures, like the catastrophic Kingston, Tenn., spill in 2008, and establishes safeguards to prevent groundwater ...

  • Volcanic ash study could help keep planes in the skies

    A study on ash blasted from volcanoes is a first step towards accurately assessing where it is safe to fly during eruptions, according to the authors. The researchers found that the ash grains ejected into the atmosphere have diverse shapes and properties. They also learned that big grains can travel further than was previously estimated. All this could improve ...

  • Nanoparticles present in residues of waste incineration plant

    The use of nanomaterials in consumer goods is growing, as is their presence in waste. A new study is the first to follow the fate of engineered nanoparticles through the entire waste incineration chain. The results indicate current filter technology is effective in removing nanoparticles from flue gas, but that nanoparticles also bind to residues, such as fly ash and slag, which eventually end up ...

  • Mining metals from heat-treated landfill proven to be economically viable

    Mining metals from landfill sites can be economically viable, a recent project in the US has demonstrated. Approximately 34 352 tonnes of metals, conservatively valued at US$7.42 million (€6.67 million) were recovered from the 8 hectare ashfill site, according to researchers who analysed the project. Across the world, mountains of municipal solid waste (MSW) are produced — and ...

  • Geosynthetics for CCR Containment and Closure

    New federal regulations on the disposal of coal combustion residuals represent new approaches in response to events where coal ash has been inadvertently released from impoundments, the blowing of contaminants into the air and the leakage of potential contaminants into groundwater. “The rule establishes technical requirements for landfills and surface impoundments under Subtitle D of the ...

  • Hydrogen monitoring improves Syngas efficiency

    Syngas (synthesis gas) is manufactured from feedstocks containing carbon, such as coal, heavy oil, natural gas or biomass, to produce a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. The production process involves a number of phases that start with gasification of the feedstock, and efficiency is greatly improved when hydrogen levels are monitored using a new sensor technology that is able to measure ...
