Carbon Burn-Out is a technology and process in which residual carbon in fly ash is combusted to produce a consistent low-carbon, high-quality pozzolan. As a side benefit, ammonia on the ash is reduced to non-detectable levels.
The presence of activated carbon in fly ash can interfere with fresh concrete’s ability to entrain the desired amount of air. Boral’s RestoreAir® process uses a liquid reagent to pre-treat fly ash, before delivery to customers, to neutralize activated carbon’s air entrainment.
Coal plants use technologies to lower nitrogen oxide emissions that can leave excess ammonia on coal ash after combustion. Boral’s Ammonia Slip Mitigation technology eliminates this condition—which can create plant maintenance and operational issues—by injecting oxidizers that convert the ammonia to harmless compounds.
Boral offers a full line of Engineered Materials for specialized applications. Boral’s research facilities are staffed with Ph.D Engineers and Chemists that can assist in developing products that are suited to your particular needs. These materials are highly modified to impart performance driven characteristics in the final product.
Boral road materials offer cost-effective alternatives and performance advantages to conventional road and highway construction and repair materials. We have more than 40 years of experience working with coal combustion products from coal-fired power generating plants to develop products targeted to road applications.
Boral offers building products manufacturers cost-effective alternatives to conventional materials that also offer significant performance advantages. We have more than 40 years of experience working with coal combustion products produced by coal-fired power plants to develop products for construction applications.
