Ashes and slags from thermal power plants (TPPs) are high on the list on production volume among other by-products from power generation. Increase in a coal share in the fuel balance of the Russian TPPs is in the long term predicted, including the respective raise of ash and slag production volumes, that results in deterioration of ecological conditions in a zone of TPP impact. In this connection there is a question on reconstruction of ash and slag removal systems in order to meet their ecological and economic characteristics.
