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?
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.
