What does coal have to do with concrete?

The cement and concrete industries consume almost 20 million tons of fly ash, bottom ash, and synthetic gypsum annually. These materials are recovered following the combustion of coal in power plants generating electricity. This presentation will provide an overview of the utility industry and a look at the future supply of these materials.

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) is a nonprofit technical and educational society organized in 1904 and is one of the world's leading authorities on concrete technology.  ACI is a forum for the discussion of all matters related to concrete and the development of solutions to problems.  ACI's Vision is to be universally recognized for its comprehensive knowledge, guidance, and influence regarding concrete and its application.

The Kansas Chapter was formed in 1974 to bring together individuals and groups in the state of Kansas who have an interest in concrete.  The goal of the Kansas Chapter is to further the chartered objectives of the American Concrete Institute, improving the design, construction, use, and maintenance of concrete products and structures by discussing and disseminating technical and educational information.
