TECHNICAL TOPIC 1 - Advanced Environmental Control Technologies for Coal

The objective of this topic is to solicit Research and Development (R D)
proposals having the potential to mitigate the environmental disadvantages
of
coal utilization through improvements in various aspects of the fuel cycle,

from coal extraction and preparation through combustion-related waste
utilization or disposal. There is a need to significantly reduce air
emissions, the volume of solid wastes, and /or water usage by improving the

performance of existing power plant control systems, such as coal cleaning,

flue gas desulfurization (FGD), low nitrogen oxides (NOx ) burners,
selective
catalytic reduction, or by developing new and innovative concepts.

Coal is a solid fuel that contains components that can lead to the
formation of
various gaseous and solid pollutants as well as deleterious solid wastes.
The
atmospheric pollutants include NOx, SO2, CO2 (a greenhouse gas),
particulate
materials as well as hazardous trace elements such as mercury. High volumes
of
solid wastes result from the disposal of coal ash and FGD sludge. Water
pollution can result from contamination during solid waste sluicing
operations
and thermal pollution from plant cooling requirements. Excess cooling water

usage is also an issue.
