from the title page and abstract, "Final report to: A/S Niro Atomizer, 305 Gladsaxevej, DK-2860 Soeborg, Denmark. . .Combustion of coal at electric power stations produces large quantities of fly ash and flue gas desulfurization wastes which must be disposed by environmentally acceptable means. Ocean disposal of these wastes is an attractive option for power stations with access to coastal waterways. For seven years, the Marine Sciences Research Center (MSRC), SUNY, has made very detailed studies on the interactions of a wide variety of coal combustion waste products in marine systems. A new FGD technology, Spray Drying Absorption, produces a dry end product composed of fly ash, desulfurization reaction products and excess reagent. With lime as the fixation reagent, the end products can be dampened and consolidated into self-hardening dense blocks. NIRO Atomizer, a manufacturer of spray drying systems has been investigating spray dryer FGD end product disposal and utilization for five years. . ."
