Technical Improvement of Air Pollution Through Fossil Power Plant Waste Management

By Sarmad Dashti Latif

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2020

Fly ash was generally released into the atmosphere in the past, but standards for air pollution control now require that it be captured before release by fitting pollution control equipment. During this process, there are many wastes for example ash and fly ash which is a waste. It is invisible, it has a nasty, and sharp smell. It affects human health when it is breathed in. It irritates the airways to cause coughing and shortness of breath. About 99% of the ash and fly ash in the air comes from human sources. The objective of this study is to reduce wastes and manage it. This project shows two different ways of waste management for two different locations which are Lukut, Malaysia, and Hanau, Germany. Both systems have advantages and disadvantages. The ash pond offers cheap costs and an easy process but exposes the fly ash and its sometimes-hazardous components to the environment. The electrostatic filter acquires more knowledge and is higher in Installation costs, but keeps fly ashes safe in a closed process the electrostatic filter seems to be more environmentally friendly and sustainable. The finding shows that this treatment was successful in reducing the wastes and managing it.

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jun. 2020

Highway engineering standards are constantly improving. In this study, a design has been done for a horizontal and vertical alignment for the centerline of a federal highway. The construction cost and pavement design have been done according to the Malaysian public works department for the federal roads system (JKR). The results indicate that the designed highway has an adequate, accurate, and economical system based on the proposed data. Accordingly, the objective has been achieved since the reliability of the designed highway was 94%.
