Coal-Based power plants consumed ~640 million tonnes of coal by the year end of 2017, which are around three fourths of the total coal used in the country. India's coal is of poor quality with almost 40-45 per cent ash, which means the plants burn 0.74 Kg/KWh of power generation, which is 41 percent higher than the global average. 

Fly ash generation, which tuned to ~180 MT by 2017 and with the present momentum of the capacity addition the numbers, will definitely increase to ~221 MT by 2018. Current levels of efforts of ash utilization have resulted in achieving just 56% by year ending 2017 and India is nowhere near its target of utilising 100% of fly ash generated by the coal based power plants.

7th edition FLY ASH UTILISATION 2018 – Conference – Expo – Awards is scheduled on 15 - 16 March 2018 at Vivanta by Taj - New Delhi, which is expected to attract participants worldwide focusing on the business, logistics and technical challenges and opportunities in the coal combustion by-products sector. The two day of 360 degree technical discussions will be packed with multiple networking opportunities among regional and international guests. Macawber Beekay has been a regular participant in Fly Ash Utilisation Conference and Expo over the years.
