Special Report No. 97-08: Proceedings of the National Bioash Utilitzation Conference

Millions of tons of boiler ashes are generated annually from the forest products and electric utility industries. Ashes derived from wood, coal, and other fuels represent a significant waste management challenge for these industries, particularly with the rising costs of landfill disposal in many regions. Boiler ash generation also creates beneficial use opportunities, since ashes have characteristics that make them suitable as soil amendments and construction materials.
