In 2015, the United States EPA issued both final Coal Combustion Rules (CCR’s) and revised Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELG’s). Both of these regulations impact the water balance of power plants throughout North America. One of the primary challenges to coal-fired power plants is to meet new discharge requirements for Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) purge streams.
