EUROCOALASH Conferences

EUROCOALASH serves as synonym for a series of European conferences to highlight the use the CCPs as valuable raw and construction materials in the European construction industry. The conference will be organised every two years in another European country to meet the different situation in CCP and market situation. By this, the focus of the conference is subject to change to respect the situation in that country/area. By this, the EUROCOALASH will be on the move! - Perhaps also to your country, your region! 

ECOBA serves as co-organiser of the conference as the EUROCOALASH conference is one of the tools to exchange experience and to inform about new developments.

EUROCOALASH 2017

The EUROCOALASH 2017 conference will be held on February 6-8 in Brno, Czech Republic. It is subtitled with "Innovations in Power Plant Technology and CCPs Utilisation" and will allow all interested parties to participate in updating on production of CCPs in the power plants and the use of CCPs as valuable raw and construction materials in different types of applications. More information is available at the conference website: http://www.fch.vut.cz/eca2017/

We would appreciate if you distribute the invitation to all interested parties.

EUROCOALASH 2014

The EUROCOALASH 2014 was held October (13) 14/15, 2014 in Munich, Germany. The programme covered the most update information on ongoing research work on reactivity and activation of fly ash for use in cement, concrete, ceramics and special binders as well as processing options. In addition, the legal situation on status and use of CCPs as well as the future environmental testing and evaluation of products has been reported.

Furthermore, a "Fly Ash Research Workshop" was held October 13, 2014 in Munich, the day before the EUROCOALASH. The Research Workshop on "Durability of Fly Ash Concrete" was organised to allow especially face to face discussion of young researchers about ongoing or recently finished research projects. In addition to durability also the reactivity of fly ash and the use in road construction was investigated due to the different situation in member states
