Indian fly-ash: production and consumption scenario

Md Emamul Haque

Electricity generation in India predominately depends upon coal based power plant for a couple of coming decades. Coal based power plant requires coal of high calorific value to generate optimum heat consequently to generate electricity, in this process a buy product which is also waste fly-ash or coal ash is produced. In India coal reserve is mainly is of lignite so the power plant burns this and produces ash, Indian coal average ash content is 35-38 percent. We require electricity, we burn coal and we produce fly-ash. In this research article the production of Indian fly-ash and consumption of it discussed
