Coal Products: Beyond energy usage, coal is used in many products that we take for granted in our everyday lives. Coal ash is a byproduct that can be used in making useful materials rather than generating more waste.
Beyond energy usage, coal is intertwined in our lives more than you may realize. Many everyday products are made from coal ash which is a byproduct of the coal burning process. For example, did you know that for every ton of fly ash used in place of Portland cement (material used in making concrete) about a ton of carbon dioxide is prevented from entering earth's atmosphere?
Take a minute to consider the types of products generated by coal. Products which you probably use every day.
