Post-Combustion

 

Post Combustion activities focus on pollution control and waste minimization activities. The pollution control options focus on removing coincidentally manufactured constituents from flue gas streams.  Waste minimization options focus on the sale and management of coal combustion by-products containing coincidentally manufactured constituents.
