NRMCA’s Lemay Co-authors Chapter of Coal Ash Book
NRMCA’s Lionel Lemay coauthored a recently published book titled Coal Combustion Products (CCPs): Their Nature, Utilization and Beneficiation. The book, published by Elsivier is a valuable resource for engineers and scientists from the coal, cement, concrete and construction industries seeking an in-depth guide to the characteristics, utilization, beneficiation and environmental impacts of coal combustion by-products. Researchers in universities working in this area will also find much to expand their knowledge. Lemay authored the chapter titled Coal Combustion Products in Green Building that discusses how fly ash is a key element of lowering the environmental impact of buildings and how it is an integral part of green building initiatives such as LEED. A significant portion of the chapter is focused on using life cycle assessment (LCA) to demonstrate the benefits of using fly ash in concrete and references research conducted at MIT.
