BENEFITS OF USING FGD GYPSUM IN AGRICULTURE PUBLISHEDBadulescu C, Marchis DM, Nistor MC
From the perspective of environmental protection, the most important area of human activities is the industry. Industrial development has not taken into account that the progress of human society itself depends not only on the goods they offer, but also of the damage caused to the environment. In order for the environmental degradation from coal burning to be reduced we need to find solutions so the possibility of recovery of resulting sulphur oxides was considered. The gypsum resulting from the process of desulphurization has a very good quality, similar to natural gypsum. Therefore it can have many uses such as feedstock in the cement industry (3-5% of the cement composition); raw material in the building materials industry or in agriculture. This paper aims to analyze the potential benefits of applying gypsum FGD (flue gas desulphurization) to agricultural lands, benefits that can be chemical or physical.
