Use of refuse-derived fuel ash as a cement component in mortar

    Abstract

    This paper presents research carried out to establish the suitability of using residue from the combustion of refuse-derived fuel (a combination of combustible refuse and coal) as a cement component. The ash itself appears to act as a hydraulic cement in its own right. When combined with Portland cement, gas is evolved which produces a low density porous cement matrix. For this reason it is suggested that such materials are most suited for aerated precast concrete applications.
