The Sustainable Future
Fly ash is used to build the infrastructure that keeps our economy moving—highways, bridges, tunnels, and buildings. And fly ash makes these structures stronger and more durable.
In recent years, the benefits of utilizing fly ash have become even more important as we strive to reduce our impact on the environment and improve sustainability.
What are CCPs?
Coal combustion products (CCP) are the materials that remain after pulverized coal is burned to generate electricity.
Coarse particles (bottom ash and boiler slag) settle to the bottom of the combustion chamber. The fine portion (fly ash) "flies up" into the stacks with flue gases and is removed by electrostatic precipitators and fabric filter bag houses. These materials have a wide range of uses to the construction, manufacturing, environmental remediation, and other industries.
