PHYSICO CHEMICAL AND MINEROLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF FLYASH OF ROURKELA STEEL PLANT, ODISHA AND ITS ECOUTILIZATIONPRATAP KUMAR SWAIN, TRINATH BISWAL AND R. B. PANDA
Now a day's scientist and researchers are trying to produce electricity from oil, natural gases,nuclear power, sun light and other renewable resources. However, the major source of electricity in India is from thermal power plants. Rourkela steel plant has two coal based captive thermal power plants. The ash produced due to the burning of coal for the generation of electricity is called fly ash which is disposed of from the plant by both dry and wet methods. The quantity of fly ash produced per month in Rourkela Steel Plant is now estimated to be about 38,000 tons. Presently the fly ash produced is deposited into the ash ponds in the form of wet slurry. The disposed fly ash is presently used for raising dyke heights of ash ponds only. Thus, the better approach for recycling and utilization of this waste is based on their physical chemical and mineralogical characterization.The present paper gives of the current status of the fly ash produced from Rourkela steel plant, it seco-utilization in various fields such as agriculture, construction, mines fillings, landfill sites, used in water softening, etc by knowing its composition and properties which not only save our environment but also helpful in many ways in our day to day life and also save our society from extra pollution load and act as a valuable material for our society.
