A synergistic partnership between WRP members and minerals experts from academia completed a major development program.  Two high-volume former waste materials were processed into a family of useful products.

  • Coal ash and bio-solids are the raw materials used to generate value-added products. Robert Mensah-Biney, "An Integrated Separation Technology for Processing Coal Comsumption By-Products and Organic Bio-solids."  

  • An in-depth feasibility probe shows the commercial potential of the process.  Ken Butcher, "Integrated Coal Ash Processing Plant Business Feasibility Study.
