Excerpt: Associated with the generation of electricity by fossil fuel combustion is the production and subsequent environmental release of primary particulate matter. This material, fly ash, presently poses a major solid waste disposal problem and a potential health hazard. The ash from coal combustion is primarily aluminosilicate in matrix and contains surface layers of vapor-deposited inorganic and organic compounds. Furthermore, interparticle chemical variability is such that individual particle composition may be quite different than the average compe sition (1). Although a number of studies have characterized the physical and chemical properties of coal fly ash (2), few detailed reports are available on oil fly ash. This is probably because of the relatively high ash content of coal and the large quantities comhusted in power generation. It is estimated that 100 million tons of coal fly ash were produced in the United States in 1980 from combustion of coal averaging an ash content of 11% by mass (3). Particulate abate ment technologies result in collection within the plant of 95.99% of the ash; thus 1-5% of the coal fly ash is released through the smokestack. Although.
