The production of waste materials during energy recovery processes is an unavoidable consequence of the need for energy; consequently, safe and efficient disposal or reuse alternatives for these waste materials is essential for sustainable development. For waste streams that must be geologically disposed, the largest volumes of energy related waste include Coal Combustion Products (CCPs) such as fly ash, coal mining wastes, and processed water and drill cuttings from oil and gas exploration… 
Characterization of biomass and high carbon content coal ash for productive reuse applications
Productively reusing the waste residuals from energy production is an essential component in sustainable disposal and management of energy related waste. In the US, the world’s second largest
Energy geotechnology
Energy consumption is closely correlated with quality of life. A 1% annual increase in power production is required to sustain current trends, and a 2% annual increase will be needed to satisfy
ANALYSIS OF COAL COMBUSTION BY-PRODUCT DISPOSAL PRACTICES IN ARID CLIMATES: LEACHATE WATER QUALITY
Coal combustion by-products (CCBs) consist of fly ash, bottom ash, and sludge from the flue gas desulfurization process. Concern has been expressed that disposal of CCBs in an unlined surface coal

Coal combustion byproducts (CCBs) disposed of in unlined landfills can affect the quality of adjacent water resources. In previous studies, CCBs have been found to leach toxic heavy metals such as
Geo Environmental Assessment on Abandoned Mine Filling with Coal Ash
For minimizing surface subsidence, river sand is mostly used in abandoned coal mines filling. Due to increase in the use of the river sand in the construction industries, the mining industries are
Characterizing and modeling the hydrologic properties of coal combustion by-products in landfills
Coal combustion byproducts (CCBs) disposed of in unlined landfills can impact the quality of adjacent water resources. In previous studies, CCBs have been found to leach toxic heavy metals such as
Effects of the Duration of Landfill Disposal on the Physicochemical, Mineralogical and Toxicity Characteristics of Coal Ash
ABSTRACT The quantities of coal ash disposed of in landfills over the past decades add up to billions of tons. Weathering in landfill would impact the mineralogical, chemical, physical and toxicity
