Workshop Origins ...

A similar workshop about issues in ponded CCPs was held in Tampa, Florida in February 2016 and in Northern Kentucky in November 2016. Prior to that, the first Ash Utilization Workshop was held in 2012 and the second in 2014. According to ACAA Executive Director Thomas Adams, "the response of the attendees at these events convinced us that we needed to offer a similar program again. The World of Coal Ash (WOCA), the flagship event for our industry, is held every other year. Some people that were not able to attend WOCA to get this information did not want to wait for the next WOCA. To serve that demand, CAER and ACAA responded with this event. The workshop has a less formal structure than is possible at WOCA, allowing for an examination of issues between speakers and attendees. It also provides the very latest updates on CCP recycling."
