Isotope Geology

Radiogenic and reliable isotopes are used commonly within the earth sciences to figure out the a while of rocks, meteorites and archeological gadgets, and as tracers to appreciate geological and environmental techniques. Isotope equipment be certain the age of the Earth, support reconstruct the weather of the previous, and clarify the formation of the chemical parts within the Universe.

Sulfate. After taking plant physiology and phytotoxicology into account, this vegetable test concludes that the obtained byproduct has sufficient effect as a fertilizer, and the negative impact of the fly ash and other likely impurities is negligible. 3' Potash fertilizer and phosphate fertilizer are not completely absorbed into the plants in one cropping, and their 7. Discussion fertilizing effects are expected to last through the next cropping too. " However, The main point at issue is how to promote environmentally N-fertilizer should be applied each year, so its consumption is friendly use of coal.

2 Coal reserves are distributed worldwide and the is carried out of the combustion furnace with the flue gases, amounts are vast (about 10 trillion tons),3 making them easily and is collected downstream by high efficiency filters, such 22 Ryunosuke Kikuchi Boiler Coal Electrostatic precipitator .......... control Flue gas cleaning unit ... u 1 Stack Solid residues Fly ash ~otto; ash FIGUREI . Typical system and by-products in pulverized coal combustion. as electrostatic precipitators or bag houses.

If these by-products are not used, they become waste and cause environmental problems. The utilization rate of FGD by-product (mainly gypsum) is much lower than that of ash. This paper therefore proposed marketable N-fertilizer (mainly ammonium sulfate) as an alternative by-product and discussed the importance of SO3 treatment of lignite-fired flue gas. Furthermore, a supplementary discussion of a solution to gaseous by-product (C02) was also given. 47Coal reserves (about 50% low-grade coal) are distributed worldwide and the amounts are vast, making them easily accessible to people everywhere.
