by-products produced on coal combustion, are the underutilized
valuable recoverable resource, which can be used for road
construction, agriculture and building related areas.
Coal power plant is the major source of
electricity generation in Australia making CCPs available in huge
amounts. It can be used as replacement for high energy in
manufacturing cement and construction aggregates. It is also used
for enhancing the properties of concrete and other building
In road construction business, it can be
