In connection with increase in the man-made impact on environment, a problem of coal ash handling being both regional and global, becomes more and more actual. At many Thermal Power Plants (TPPs) of Russia ash disposal sites are close to their design filling that forces power engineers to search for the new ways of dealing with these matters.
