2016 OSU Coal Combustion Residues Summit
The Ohio State University held a Coal Combustion Residues (CCR) Summit on Friday, May 13, 2016, at the Fawcett Event Center on the OSU campus.
The summit was attended by over 60 representatives from academia, state and federal agencies, and private sector stakeholders (including coal-fired utilities, marketers, trade groups, consulting companies, etc.)
The objective of the 2016 OSU CCR Summit was to review what has been accomplished so far since 1997 and to look at action items/needs for outreach and research for CCRs over the next 5-7 years and beyond. The morning sessions were plenary presentations and the four concurrent sessions in the afternoon were focus groups dealing with four topics of most interest for CCR beneficial use and disposal.
