About the book
Fly ash is a combustible material derived from the burning of pulverized coal to generate electricity in a coal power plant. An enormous amount of fly ash is produced through this combustion process and is usually dry/wet disposed of and stockpiled in a dump. The efficient management of the fly ash in a dump has been a serious concern to the environmental experts. In recent, various attempts have been made to alternatively harness mammoth quantities for various applications in the industrial, agricultural, and civil construction sectors of the economy. Some of the applications are in water treatment, soil amelioration, construction pavement, construction bricks, etc. Some of these advances are fraught with new development and some challenges. This book is intended to have a collection of some of these recent advances in the utilization of fly ash. We will also shed light on some of the limitations, problems, and challenges encountered in these new scientific developments.
