Fly ash from coal-fired power stations has become an important raw material for construction. But does the decline of coal power mean there’s no more ash?
Blog | News
Fifty-two percent of the coal ash produced during 2019 was recycled – marking the fifth consecutive year that more than half of the coal ash produced in the United States was beneficially used rather than disposed. The volume of fly ash used in concrete increased 1 percent over the previous year, but most other uses saw significant declines, leading to an overall decrease in recycling activity of 31 percent.

Our US based sister Association, the American Coal Ash Association Executive Director Thomas Adams was featured recently on the “Let’s Be Civil” engineering podcast. Prior, Tom was employed by the American Concrete Institute and has spent over 30 years in the ready mixed concrete industry. Tom provides an insighht into coal combustion product benefication journey partnership programs with US EPA (C2P2) and uses in the US, but more importantly the future harvesting opportunities for CCPs and role in the circular economy. 40 min duration.
The U PANEL walls contain a modular locking wall system that eliminates the need for cement, sand, lime mortar, screws, nails, or bolts to join the modules. The innovative product reduces build time by 75% compared to bricklaying; providing the Amata community with a cost-effective, easily installed and low-maintenance store.

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.
