The Bureau of Mines Avondale Research Center has investigated the resource recovery potential of three large-volume wastes in response to questions raised concerning some of the potential environmental problems that could be caused by these wastes. These wastes--cement kiln dust, phosphate rock wastes, and coal ash--were chosen because of their potential for resource recovery and possible alternative uses. By determining alternative uses and/or valuable accessory minerals present, the wastes could be converted from a potentially hazardous waste to a resource, reducing adverse environmental effects. Details of these studies on large-volume waste are given including methods of analyses, compositions of the wastes, resource recovery potential, and environmental assessment.
