Environmental Study through combustion test of Indian coal

As flue gas treatment devices in India, desulfurization/dust removal devices are required in many cases. Howe ver, coal from India generally contains a lot of ash, which leads to high load of smoke dust to flue gas treatment facilities with possible negative influence on dust removal/desulfurization performance. A promising technology to

Gypsum as an agricultural product | Certified Crop Adviser

Gypsum that comes from coal plants is called flue-gas desulfurization gypsum, as it comes from the process that 'scrubs' sulfur out of the smoke stacks to reduce air pollution. "The gypsum that is recovered has good quality," says Dick. "The gypsum particles are small and uniform in size making them quite reactive.

Characterization of Coal Ash Including Fly Ash Particles

thermal power plants. CCPs include coal ash (bottom ash and fly ash), boiler slag and flue gas desulfuriza-tion material (FGD) (1). As suggested by their names, bottom ash is the residue ash that falls to the bottom of the furnace during the combustion of coal, while fly ash consists of particles that are carried up the stack in the flue gas.
