Coal Refuse / Reject - Monday November 30, 2009

This can constitute up to 40% of total coal mined. The reject coal has come at great expense to the mine and generates costs in storage and disposal. Disposal of coal refuse has assumed a greater importance within the overall operations of a coal preparation plant.

Environmental constraints on disposal have limited the options and increased the costs in a period when market forces have squeezed profits. These and other factors require innovative alternatives to the traditional methods of refuse disposal.

Innovative methods of disposal and reuse for the coal refuse are being developed. Coal refuse will examine the options for reuse and benefication of the coal refuse product delivering revenue from waste product and reducing storage and landfill costs

Power Station Ash Management - Tuesday December 1, 2009

This is an increasingly important issue within power generation
The classification of the ash waste differs in each state and therefore its storage and reuse can be highly regulated by the differing environmental rules and regulations.

Internationally the reuse and sale of the fly ash and furnace bottom ash is well established. The reuse of the fly ash not only creates a revenue stream and reduces environmental impacts but adds to profit, by reducing storage costs.

The two day conference will examine the latest developments in power station ash management practices, and target senior executives from the coal, power generation, engineering, cement and other associated industries.
