The Ash Development Association of Australia is your industry body representing the interests of producers, processors, marketers, suppliers and other associated stakeholders of coal combustion products.  An important part of the Association’s role is ensuring that Association members are kept abreast of wider industry developments, environmental issues and legislation changes affecting our industry. 

To further enhance our current bi-annual ‘Coal Ash Matters’ industry newsletter, we have introduced a bi-monthly ‘Coal Ash Flash’  (e-Blast) to keep our members abreast of current news and issues from around Australia and the Globe.
