Fly Ash

This is an important news story which we all need to consider.

Concrete shortage looms for major projects.

This all comes down to the fact that there is much less Fly Ash being produced in the UK.

Fly ash is used to ensure the setting of concrete and plaster. It provides concrete with more protection from wet conditions and chemical attack.

There is now much less of the raw material uses to make fly ash. This is due to the declining use of coal by power plants. Thus there might be increasing exports of Fly ash from places like India.

The bottom line being that there will be fewer economic reasons to close the coal power plants in the countries where this material comes from. This in turn is bad news in terms of stopping climate change.

That’s why it is important to develop an alternative to this material.
