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… 

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
