Report Back: Coal Ash Conference 2019

Accelerating Ash Beneficiation

Once again SACAA arranged an Ash Conference on 14 & 15 August 2019, that was hosted by Sasol at their magnificent Sasol Place in Sandton, which elevated the conference to a new height.

The focus of this conference was for the academics and industry to come and share the work done in ash research in line with the Phakisa Initiatives themes, as well as the large producers to share their strategies, thoughts and plans in support of beneficiation of ash in the drive to reduce the environmental footprint.
