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.
A big win for the Central Coast and construction industry in driving Australia’s future towards a sustainable and circular economy.
RMIT University is leading a new major Australian Research Council (ARC) Industrial Transformation Research Hub. The hub will address the landfill waste crisis in Australia and focus on transforming reclaimed waste into new materials for use in the construction and manufacturing sectors.
The world’s first project to create magnesium out of brown coal fly ash has received the tick of approval in Hazelwood, Victoria.
Latrobe City Council granted Latrobe Magnesium with the $50 million investment to the region.
Using state-of-the-art technology, the team addresses the challenges of industrial waste and resource expenditure.
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.

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!
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.
Following almost two years of consensus building discussions, the definition of what constitutes Class C and Class F fly ashes is now officially changed in the United States. The American Coal Ash Association during their recent Winter meeting reported the likelyhood of changes to come.
