Another successful workshop, organized by AsianCAA and hosted by our friends at ALCON (Anil Counto Enterprises) took place in Goa, India during the globally prestigious CoalTrans India conference.
The speaker, Mr. Bill Martin, is an experienced operations, sales and marketing executive with decades of experience in the construction materials industry. Bill’s expertise covers raw materials procurement, supply chain management, new business development and manufacturing operations in cement, masonry and concrete products.
Bill has held positions at the ADAA (Ash Development Association of Australia) and the Concrete Masonry Association of Australia.
A regular at the annual Asian Coal Ash Association’s Coal Ash Asia conferences, Bill and the team at CAS (Coal Ash Solutions) team offer complimentary introductions, translation and business matching to all international guests in attendance.
Explored in “Fly Ash Use in Road and Embankment Construction” were some of the technical, environmental and operational requirements for achieving maximum benefits from fly ash in road and embankment construction.
In attendance at the workshop were ash managers, construction and engineering firms, government officials including the Department of Transport and the Ministry of Environment.
The group examined the many benefits of incorporating fly ash and bottom ash into Portland Cement/Concrete. Extensive research and countless highway and bridge construction projects have indisputably proven the following facts about the use of fly ash in construction:
1. Higher ultimate strength
2. Improved workability
3. Lowered costs
4. Reduced bleeding
5. Reduced heat of hydration
6. Reduced permeability
7. Increased sulfate attack resistance
8. Increased resistance to ASR
9. Reduced shrinkage
10. Increased durability.
