  • Thermochemical data for 58 families of compounds are newly compiled. Included are halides and a few oxide families of metals which can exist in more than one valence state. Heats of formation, heats of transition, transition temperatures, coefficients of heat capacity equations, and coefficients of integrated heat of formation and free energy of formation equations are tabulated. Computer-produced graphs give free energy of formation at 298 to l500 deg K or higher. The main contribution of this work is a revision of estimates by Brewer and Glassner of thermodynamic properties for which experimental data are not available. Such revisions aremore » based on new experimental values of related properties. Also included are calculated temperatures at which run-down products of galvanic cells can be thermally regenerated.

  • Information from DOE projects and commercial endeavors in fluidized-bed combustion (FBC) and coal gasification is the focus of the task reported here. The primary goal is to provide an easily accessible compilation of characterization information on the by-products from these processes to government agencies and industry to facilitate sound regulatory and management decisions. Additional written documentation will facilitate the preparation of an updated final version of the DOE report to Congress on barriers to CCB utilization. The information assembled will be valuable to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its upcoming decision on the waste status of FBC by-productsmore » and had to be submitted to EPA by April 1997. This effort facilitates interaction between DOE and industry regarding input to EPA. The effort of DOE FETC to provide this type of information to EPA is consistent with the recommendation in the DOE Report to Congress on ash barriers that a determination placing CCT by-products under RCRA Subtitle D for solid wastes is needed if these materials are to be utilized. Several DOE projects have already investigated utilization of these materials, so this is an opportunity to give this information the emphasis it deserves.« less
  • U.S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Technology Center-Morgantown (DOE FETC) efforts in the areas of fossil fuels and clean coal technology (CCT) have included involvement with both conventional and advanced process coal conversion by-products. In 1993, DOE submitted a Report to Congress on "Barriers to the Increased Utilization of Coal Combustion Desulfurization Byproducts by Governmental and Commercial Sectors" that provided an outline of activities to remove the barriers identified in the report. DOE charged itself with participation in this process, and the work proposed in this document facilitates DOE's response to its own recommendations for action. The work reflects DOE'smore » commitment to the coal combustion by-product (CCB) industry, to the advancement of clean coal technology, and to cooperation with other government agencies. Information from DOE projects and commercial endeavors in fluidized-bed combustion (FBC) and coal gasification is the focus of this task. The primary goal is to provide an easily accessible compilation of characterization information on the by-products from these processes to government agencies and industry to facilitate sound regulatory and management decisions. Additional written documentation will facilitate the preparation of an updated final version of background information collected for DOE in preparation of the Report to Congress on barriers to CCB utilization.« less
  • The primary goal of this task is to provide an easily accessible compilation of characterization information on clean coal technology (CCT) by-products to government agencies and industry to facilitate sound regulatory and management decisions. Supporting objectives are to (1) fully utilize information from previous DOE projects, (2) coordinate with industry and other research groups, (3) focus on by-products from pressurized fluidized-bed combustion (PFBC) and gasification, and (4) provide information relevant to the EPA evaluation criteria for the decision on the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) status of fluidized-bed combustion (FBC) by-products.
