Value in Waste: Fly Ash Reuse and Recovery Opportunities

In comparison, the study found direct acid leaching could only recover about 2 – 4.75% alumina. The study found that the calcination of fly ash at specific parameters significantly increased the leachability of the alumina from the fly ash compared to direct acid leaching.

In summary, the research findings have shown that it is possible to develop cost effective materials based on natural materials such as fly ash and zeolite to remove toxic elements e.g. uranium from mine contaminated water and that it is possible to use the developed materials to recover value (e.g. gold lost through leachates) from such water.

COAL MINING AND THE ENVIRONMENT

generation of electricity in South Africa. Land over burning, worked-out mines is totally unusable. The pillars also represent a large surface area, and sulphur compounds in the coal are slowly oxidized by exposure to air. As they oxidize, they generate acid, and the acid can leach out and so give rise to “acid mine drainage.”

Potential of fly ash for neutralisation of acid mine drainage

May 21, · Lignite (PK), bituminous (FI) and biomass (SE) fly ashes (FAs) were mineralogically and geochemically characterised, and their element leachability was studied with batch leaching tests. The potential for acid neutralisation (ANP) was quantified by their buffering capacity, reflecting their potential for neutralisation of acid mine drainage. Quartz was the common mineral in FAs detected by XRD
