A gypsum ore dryer is often necessary to reduce the surface moisture and prepare the ore for further processing. A grinding step may follow drying. Synthetic Gypsum. Synthetic gypsum, or syn gyp, is produced as a result of the flue gas desulfurization process used at coal-fired power plants to scrub pollutants from emissions. For this reason

Synthetic Gypsum BuildingGreen

Jul 30, 2010 Synthetic gypsum, which is now used in about 30% of drywall, is a byproduct of coal-fired power plants. It is sometimes confused with fly ash—another coal combustion product that’s been in the news recently—but the two have very little in common. Synthetic gypsum is also called flue-gas-desulfurization (FGD) gypsum.
