S.O. 763(E), Dated 14.09.1999 and amended on 27.08.2003 , regarding the utilization of fly ash/Bottom ash generated from Coal/Lignite based thermal power plant, to protect the environment, conserve top soil & prevent the dumping & disposal of fly ash discharged from coal or lignite based thermal power plants. Further there is need for restricting the excavation of top soil for manufacture of bricks & promoting the utilization of fly ash in the manufacture of building material & in construction activity within the radius of 100 Km from coal or lignite based thermal power plants.

The Central Government has further made amendment to the said Notification vide S.O. 2804 (E), dated. 03.11.2009, prescribing the percentage of fly ash utilization by weight in the building material or products and prescribing the target of fly ash utilization for all coal and or lignite based Thermal Power Stations and, or expansion units in operation before the date of the said amendment to achieve 100% fly ash utilization within 5 years from the date of issue of the said Notification dtd. 03.11.2009. The target date for achieving 100% utilization of fly ash generated from new coal and or lignite based Thermal Power Stations and or expansion units commissioned after the date of the said amendment dated 03.11.2009 shall be within 4 years from the date of commissioning thereof.

As per the Amendment to the Fly Ash Utilization Notification dtd. 03.11.2009, it is obligatory on the part of every construction agency including all the construction agencies of Central or State or Local Government and Private or Public Sector within a radius of 100 kms. from a coal or lignite based Thermal Power Plant to use fly ash based products for construction, such as: Cement or Concrete, Fly Ash Bricks or Blocks or Tiles or Clay fly ash bricks, Blocks or Tiles or Cement fly ash bricks or Blocks or similar products or a combination or aggregate of them in every construction project, provided that such Thermal Power Plant Stations shall facilitate the availability of required quality and quantity of fly ash as may be decided by the Expert Committee.

Regarding implementation of said notification, the Board has taken the following decisions for effective implementation of fly ash utilization and the same was communicated to all the Thermal Power Plant to comply with.

  1. Four sales executives preferably with MBA Back ground may be deployed by the thermal Plants for aggressive marketing of fly ash, identification of bulk consumers, coordinate with stake holders etc to improve fly ash utilization within the timelines committed during the meeting on priority basis.
  2. Thermal plants which have not yet provided 100% dry ash collection system shall provide 100% ash collection system with adequate storage capacity in a 6 months time as a first step to ensure 100% fly ash utilization.
  3. All thermal plants shall install hydro bins or any other suitable facility for collection of entire bottom ash by end of March, 2017 to facilitate utilization of bottom ash.
  4. Separate bank account shall be opened for depositing sales proceeds from fly ash and utilize these funds only for promotion of fly ash utilization activities till achieving of 100% fly ash utilization. Enough operational freedom may be allowed by A.P. Genco to the individual Thermal Power Plants to utilize fly ash sales proceeds for development of infrastructure or facilities, promotion and facilitation of activities related to fly ash utilization only till TPPs will achieve 100% fly ash utilization.
  5. Thermal plants shall undertake massive fly ash utilization campaign in the major towns/ cities nearer to their plant in association of Zonal / Regional Offices of APPCB to create awareness on fly ash notification and mandatory requirement of use of only fly ash based products in the construction activity in the prescribed Zone by providing hoardings in the tows/cities falling in their prescribed zone as agreed during the meeting.
