Here at the ADAA we often come across great articles or industry updates that we would like to share but the next edition is some months off. This year we have introduced our bi-monthly Coal Ash Flash e-Blast to keep our members and readers updated on current news and issues from around Australia and the Globe. This edition of Coal Ash Matters features a mosaic of interesting articles about coal combustion products CCPs and other relevant applications. In this months member profile we interview David Wright of Coal ReUse. Coal ReUse has adopted an open market approach for access to CCPs generated at Stanwell Corporations Tarong Power Stations. We also have an article from Dr Jane Aiken an environmental scientist from LLS Industrial about the marketing of coal ash for agriculture through the promotion of a commercial supply success model and a strategically national approach to the supply chain. Aiken further canvases the need for technical guidance and support from professional soil or environmental scientists on appropriate testing suites. This edition highlights some large-scale projects and developments on home soil and abroad. Beginning with the Omega Bridge on the South Coast of NSW. Opened in February and at over 340 metres long the bridge is the centrepiece of a 329 million Princess Highway upgrade between Gerringong and Gerroa. Across the South Pacific Ocean some 13000 kilometres away 34 venues and stadiums have used fly ash for the 2016 Rio De Janeiro Olympics. Peering into the past a team of scientists may have discovered the reason that concrete structures such as the Colosseum have lasted thousands of years. Another article looks to the future where the construction of houses and buildings may become autonomous tasks for 3D printers in coming years. We also have an update from the CRC - Low Carbon Living team on some exciting projects that are on track to be completed soon as well as a report from the 23rd Australasian Conference on the Mechanics of Structures and Materials and updates on coming Conferences from across the globe. We hope you enjoy this edition coupled with editions of Coal Ash Flash in June and August.
