As COVID-19 continues to evolve, the Ash Development Association of Australia would like to reassure our members that we are actively monitoring and responding accordingly to Government updates.
The latest webinar from IEA Clean Coal Centre.
CPEE have advised that, due to the ongoing and increasing social isolation measures being brought into place to slow transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
There have been numerous changes to Australian Standards that are relevant to our Industry.
Swinbourne University of Technology Researchers, Dr Behzad Nematollahi and Professor Jay Sanhayan, have taken big strides towards more sustainable concrete.

In a white paper published in January 2020, A Comprehensive Survey of Coal Ash Law and Commercialization: Its Environmental Risks, Disposal Regulation, and Beneficial Use Markets commissioned by the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners under a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, found that regulation to comply with Federal and State EPA requirements by utilities [coal fired power stations] or CFPS will be costly.
Global changes to the coal power industry are reflected in fly ash production, with the shift to Asia creating a fly ash deficit in the USA and Western Europe. Amid rising demand, the market price of fly ash has risen and is currently one third that of cement.
India’s leading companies involved in the construction, infrastructure, and ready-mix concrete sectors have been given the green light to trial EdenCrete (a carbon nanotube enriched liquid) with geopolymer cement. By exploring the potential of the carbon-strengthened additive, India aims to combine EdenCrete with high pozzolan (fly ash, silica fume, slag) concrete mixes to optimise performance and increase cement efficiency.
The rising need for more housing, buildings and developments to shape our growing population is simultaneously sparking concerns of carbon emissions and its impact on future generations. For Toowoomba based construction company, Wagners, sustainability in the construction industry is key.
Communities destroyed in the blink of an eye. What little remains, buried in ash.

The Coal Combustion and Gasification Products (CCGP) online journal welcomes our Chief Executive Officer, Craig Heidrich on the CCGP Editorial Board.
The Ash Development Association of Australia and the University of NSW recently met with Sydney Metro to discuss
Every single update from the Australian Society for Concrete Pavements.
Coal Ash is so often misrepresented in the media, academics like Dr. Lisa Bradley are attempting to combat this issue.
Plently of exciting things coming from the Australian Society for Concrete Pavements!
ASCP Brisbane Forum & CPEE Concrete Pavement Design and Constrution Course
The 29th Biennial National Conference of the Concrete Institute of Australia was held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney, NSW. Taking place from 8th of September to 11th of September 2019. The focused theme for Concrete 2019 was: 'Concrete in Practice –Progress through Knowledge'.
A number of Australian Standards relevant to the Sampling & Testing of Aggregates have been published recently. The purpose of the Standard is to provide general information on the requirements of standard pieces of equipment used throughout the AS 1141 series for the testing of aggregate and rock for engineering purposes.
In June 2019, the Sydney City Council along with University of NSW and Wagners Concrete worked together to lay 15 metres of Geopolymer Concrete in a busy street of Sydney. The project was part of 7 years of research together with UNSW and the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living, which saw the concrete laid to undergo 5 years of testing against regular concrete laid as a control.
The beneficial use of coal combustion products (CCPs) during 2018 resulted in 5.936 million tonnes or 47% being beneficially used, resulting in the conservation of; energy; finite natural resources, the reduction of carbon emissions through the recovery of CCPs being mineral by-product resources.
