New EPA Regulations on Fly Ash Handling

Coal Ash Regulation Update

On December 19, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized national regulations to provide for the safe disposal of coal combustion residuals (CCRs) from coal-fired power plants. CCRs, generically referred to as coal ash, also includes by-products such as fly ash and bottom ash. Fly ash in particular has been designated as a non-hazardous material, and many of the groups whose input influenced legislation are now focused on reforming the regulations on disposal to be more lenient, promoting responsible recycling of fly ash, such as ASTM C618-grade fly ash processing. In place of disposal, several safe uses for reprocessed fly ash have been distinguished in the new regulations, and are estimated to result in billions of dollars in savings.

Since publication in the Federal Register on April 17, 2015, states are now required to adopt the federal minimum criteria and revise their Solid Waste Management Plans (SWMPs) accordingly for EPA approval. The actual effective dates for each part of the rule varies from 6 months to 30 months.

Ivanpah solar thermal project uses DustTamer Wind Fences

The Ivanpah solar thermal project, which Bechtel is constructing for BrightSource in the Mojave Desert, will be the largest solar plant in the world when completed in 2013. DSI supplied DustTamer Wind Fence materials for the solar array staging area to prevent damage to the arrays from dust erosion and turn-over of unattached stored units. DustTamer can also be used for the permanent solar field to reduce the effects of dust erosion on reflectors and dust accumulation that can reduce collection efficiency. With DustTamers wind velocity reduction, it may be possible to reduce solar array foundation and/or structural steel requirements and associated cost. Another application for DustTamer material is to reduce the visual impact of the solar field and potential glare from reflectors. Photo courtesy of BrightSource / Power Engineering.
