​Description

In October 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued their final rule on the management of coal combustion residuals (CCRs), which include fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag and scrubber waste material produced by coal-fired power plants. The range of the cost of compliance with the CCR rule is shown to vary from $1 million per power plant to several million or more. This new TechSurveillance article summarizes requirements for monitoring the performance of existing CCR disposal units, as well as requirements for closing existing disposal units.
