Cenospheres - Case Study
The problem: A cenosphere is a lightweight, inert, hollow sphere made largely of silica and alumina and filled with air or inert gas, typically produced as a byproduct of coal combustion at thermal power plants. On average 0.5% of the fly ash generated in a coal fired power station boiler are Cenospheres. When fly ash is wet discharged in to ash ponds/lagoons cenospheres float on the water ...
Utilization of fly ash in construction industries for environment management
Abstract Fly ash is naturally cementations coal combustion by-product. A fine glass powder recovered from the gases of burning coal during the production of electricity is fly ash. The combustion of powdered coal in thermal power plants produces fly ash. Disposal of high amount of fly ash from thermal power plants absorb huge amount of water, energy and land area by ash ponds. Generation of ...
