Reclamation of Ohio Coal Mine Sites Using FGD Byproducts:  Phase II Demonstration Projects

The goal of this work is to promote the high-volume beneficial use of Ohio FGD by-products in the reclamation of abandoned and active Ohio coal surface mine sites. The focus of this project is the beneficial use of FGD gypsum and stabilized sulfite FGD material at coal mine sites in the vicinity (within 15 miles) of Ohio FGD generating stations.

Coal Combustion Products Extension Program

The goal of this work is to increase the annual utilization tonnage of Ohio Coal Combustion Products (CCPs) from 3 million tons per year in 2008 to about 5.6 million tons by 2012, i.e. increase Ohio utilization rates from current 30% rate to 35% by 2012 despite a projected 60% increase in the annual production of CCPs.
