The combustion of coal in coal-fired power plants produces several materials, including: fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag, and flue gas desulfurization material. Together, these materials represent what is generally referred to as coal ash, or sometimes as CCBs. About 750 metric tonnes (MT) of total coal ash is produced per year globally, but less than 50 % of world production is utilized (Izquierdo 2012).
