USER GUIDELINE FOR COAL BOTTOM ASH and BOILER

The majority of coal bottom ash and boiler slag are produced at coal-fired electric utility generation stations, with some coming from coal-fired boilers or independent coal-burning electric generation facilities. The type of bottom ash or boiler slag produced depends on the type of coal-burning furnace. Bottom ash is produced as a result of

Fly Ash aep

Fly ash is perhaps the best known type of coal ash. It is a powdery material made up of tiny, separate glass spheres. Chemically, fly ash consists primarily of silicon, aluminum, iron and calcium oxides. The most common application for AEP fly ash is as partial replacement for cement in concrete, concrete products and grouting applications.
