Using fly ash
Using fly ash
Ash from coal fired power stations was a waste product to be dumped. A new area of land was made near Musselburgh through dumping ash, some of which is now a nature reserve. Now ash is no longer waste. It is used in a variety of industries like agriculture, carpet making and road building. Here ash from Cockenzie power station is being carried away after being dug from a lagoon. Sprinklers keep the ash moist until its carried away.
