The record of disastrous landslides and geotechnical failures
(ACAA) promotes the beneficial use of coal combustion products (CCPs). CCPs are produced by the burning of coal in a boiler and take the form of fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag, flue gas desulfurization materials, and other similar materials.
Ohio generates approximately 10 million tons of CCPs every year. When treated and applied correctly, CCPs can be put to multiple productive uses ranging from highway applications, mineland reclamation to agricultural applications.
