The Ash Development Association of Australia was pleased to host another CCPs Workshop as a follow-up to our Workshop for Transport for NSW in May of this year. This Workshop was co-hosted by Stanwell Corporation & Capricorn Enterprises.

The Workshop provided a terrific overview for potential engagers of CCPs. We hope to continue discussions and are tentatively planning on hosting another follow-up Workshop later in the year.

Coal Combustion Products (CCPs) – often referred to as “coal ash” and including “fly ash” and “bottom ash” – are solid materials produced when coal is burned to generate electricity.  There are many good reasons why the 12 million tonnes of CCPs generated annually are viewed as resources. Beneficiating (using) CCPs conserves natural resources, saves energy and reduces associated carbon emissions contributing towards an efficient circular economy. Applications incorporating CCPs have been proven to out perform products made without it!  Coal continues to be the largest energy source for electricity generation within Australia, and accordingly significant volumes of CCPs are produced, used and stored annually.
