Case Study #2: Coal Ash: Disasters and Opportunities
In the production of electricity, coal burnt in a furnace generates steam that is used in the production of electricity. In the process of producing electricity, there are also a number of by-products that are created. These include boiler slug, bottom ash, fly ash, and flue gas desulfurization materials. The electricity utility industry of the United States burns more than a billion tons of coal annually. These products find their way into the environment and have proved to be a threat to health, hygiene and the general safety of the environment. Combustion in coal ash is likely to poison streams and drinking water supplies in the country. Among the most threatening form of coal ash are those mentioned above, especially fly ash and bottom ash (Gottlieb, Gilbert, & Evans , 2010).
