Description
Excerpt: This document presents the data used to characterize fossil fuel combustion (FFC) wastes for the Report to Congress on Remaining Wastes from Fossil Fuel Combustion. The purpose of this document is to compile the data used for this purpose into one report. The Report to Congress itself further summarizes the data and discusses its ramifications. This document is composed of two major sections: chemical characteristics (Section 2) and leachate characteristics (Section 3). The chemical characteristics section focuses on the total concentration of primary constituents of concern (e.g., metals) in FFC wastes. The leachate characteristics section focuses on the results of leaching analyses on FFC wastes. The primary analyses included are the toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP) and extraction procedure (EP) analysis, because these were the analyses used to characterize FFC waste leachate for use in the risk assessment portion of the Report to Congress. In a few cases, other analyses that are believed to be relevant to the characterization of FFC waste leachate (e.g., porewater data from surface impoundments managing coal combustion waste) are also presented. Physical characteristics (e.g., physical state, particle size) were described using standard industry texts and best professional judgment. They were not the subject of any detailed sampling efforts. Therefore, while these characteristics are summarized in the Report to Congress, they are not included in this data compilation.
