Abstract

Fly ash is a potentially important raw material which can be extensively utilized. Numerous studies have been performed in order to find out application areas for the waste fly ash. In all of them highlight the widespread use of fly ash as raw material for production of ceramic tiles, glass industries, as additive in cement construction, in composite materials and sintered material, in acidic spoil and coalrefuse revegetation, as a soil amendment etc. Every year in Macedonia 900 000 – 1 100 000 t of coal fly ash are produced. Only 10% of coal fly ash is used in cement products which are far below the global utilization. The restis disposed into ash dumps or landfill which is an inconvenient solution both from the environmentaland economical point of view.The use of fly ash contributes to preserve the natural resources and saves environment.
