The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering classifying coal combustion residues, more commonly known as coal ash, as a hazardous waste. CCRs are byproducts of the combustion of coal at power plants and
are disposed of in liquid form at large surface impoundments, in solid form at landfills, or in many cases beneficially recycled .This classification would place strict and expensive regulations on coal ash, burdening both coal power plant owners and the $2-billion-a year coal ash recycling trade that uses the byproduct for a variety of purposes.
