Brief estimation of ecological indicators of ash and slag removal systems of the Russian Thermal Power Plants is given. Main principles of creation and reconstruction of the operating ash and slag removal systems at TPPs are presented. Block diagrams of the traditional and possible alternative ash removal systems by example of Reftinskaya SDPP are shown. Some aspects of implementing ecologically sound ash and slag removal technologies at reconstruction of coal-fired power plants are considered. An algorithm of decision making, considering the issues on ash removal arrangement in the case of coal-fired power plants retrofitting, is described.
