Thanks for visiting our web site of Korean Coal Ash Recycling Association (KCARA).
KCARA was established in July of 2004 for the purpose of exchanging information on the
reuse of coal ash in korean
In Korea, the coal is very important fossil fuel for the generation of electric power
and about 37% of total power generation is being covered by coal-fired power plants,
next to nuclear power plant which is about 40%.
Until 1990's, in the mean time, coal ash had been recognized and treated simply as
mass wastes being generated unavoidably after combustion of coal in coal-fired power
plants but from the year of 2000, the recycling ratio of coal ash has been steadily
increasing as the most of fly ash have been used as a partial substitute of Portland
cement in the field of concrete (ready mixed concrete).
Now, we need to make more efforts to diversify the uses of coal ash in various areas
through exchange of information among the members who have common interest in the
recycling of coal ash all over the world.
