Advanced technology recycles coal ash for use in

2020-10-8  Recycling coal ash for concrete is practical and safe, but excess carbon in the ash must be removed before it’s suitable for reuse. In most cases, coal ash is between 6% and 15% carbon, which is too high to meet specifications for concrete. The STAR unit reduces the carbon level below 1%.

Recycled coal ash makes better concrete - Physics Today

2019-11-1  For the concrete to remain crack-free, the mixture must dry slowly—over a period of days—and uniformly. Farnam, Balapour, and their colleagues realized they could tailor the properties of coal ash to produce a porous, lightweight aggregate that absorbs and desorbs water more efficiently than the traditional aggregates of shale, clay, slate, and foamed glass.

Got concrete? If so, it contains recycled CPS Energy

2014-11-14  Perhaps least known, though, is the fact that CPS Energy recycles 100% of the coal ash generated by its coal plants. Even better, the recycling process generates about $2 million in proceeds for the public utility and the community each year when sold for future use as an important ingredient in concrete, roads and other building materials.
