Are you Capitalizing on Your Fly Ash?
Fly ash demand is currently increasing, as the sources of the ash decrease. For many plants, fly ash sales can create a revenue stream that also avoids the costs of disposal. However, competing environmental objectives may influence the chemistry of the ash and take it out of contention for sales. Modeling environmental performance can indicate where gains can be made to positively influence collection and ash chemistry. Often, looking at boiler tuning and precipitator performance can yield improvements that minimize or eliminate the need for additives, meaning that you can still sell your fly ash. For many customers, paying attention to the basics of combustion and improving back-end performance provides an opportunity to meet environmental compliance, maintain fly ash chemistry, and identify sales opportunities to support the revenue generation of the plant.
