Webinar: The Future of Fly Ash in the US

December 14 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST

Description

A decline in the production of electricity from coal-fired power plants, has largely contributed to a decline in availability of fly ash for the concrete industry. Given fly ash has become an essential concrete ingredient to improve its durability and lower its carbon footprint, fly ash suppliers, specifiers and academia have been exploring multiple alternatives to meet the demand for supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) that can provide similar benefits. This presentation will provide an overview of alternative sources of fly ash and emerging SCMs as well as the changes needed to current SCM specifications to facilitate the introduction of new materials.

Speakers

Ivan Diaz, Director of Research, Boral Resources LLC
Ivan Diaz Loya is Director of Research at Boral Resources, Taylorsville, GA. He holds a PhD in engineering from Louisiana Tech University and has more than 15 years of experience in fly ash research. He is the chair of ACI Committee 232, Fly Ash and Bottom Ash in Concrete and is a member of Committees 240, Natural Pozzolans, 236, Material Science of Concrete and 242, Alternative Cements. He is also a member of ASTM Committees C01 on Cement and C09 on Concrete and Aggregates and of the Natural Pozzolan Association. His research interests include fly ash and natural pozzolan reactivity in concrete, alternative supplementary cementitious materials and identifying and developing processes to beneficially use coal combustion products and other pozzolans.
