Industrial Research has developed a process which will enable the fly ash waste material from burning coal at the Huntly Power Station to be used as a feedstock for making new geoploymer materials.
Geopolymers are being investigated as an alternative to traditional cement materials and for waste remediation of hazardous substances.
Previously the high calcium level of fly ash had caused problems with accelerated setting times. The new process has overcome this difficulty making fly ash a serious contender for the manufacture of geopolymers.
h4. We’d like to hear from you
We are interested in hearing from anyone who may have another potential application for this new process or who has another industrial by-product which could have value added to it.
