Abstract

EUROCOALASH is an international conference, which is concerned with the use of Coal Combustion Products (CCPs) in the construction industry in Europe. The Conference takes place every two years, moving between different countries, and is co-organised by the European Coal Combustion Products Association (ECOBA) and a local institution in the particular country. In 2019, the sixth conference in the series - EuroCoalAsh 2019, was hosted by the Concrete Technology Unit, School of Science and Engineering, University of Dundee, Scotland, UK.
The last few years have seen a number of challenges in the production and sourcing of CCPs. Coal combustion technology in electricity generation is changing, while coal-fired power stations are also gradually being taken out of service in many countries. These will affect the materials and their supply,
with growth in international trading of CCPs likely. There is also an increasing interest in recovery and processing of material held in long-term deposits (e.g. stockpiles and lagoons) as an alternative source.

Developments with CCPs in existing and novel applications, which look to exploit the unique properties and environmental benefits they offer, are on-going. At the same time, Standards and Regulations are being updated in support of their use in various aspects of construction. The 2019 Conference will bring together participants from industry, research and academic backgrounds to
consider these and other issues. Over 50 presentations will be given with 43 papers published and authors and delegates attending from 18 countries.
