Recent announcements

The UKQAA notes the recent announcements of the intention to close Rugeley Power Station and the possible closure of three units at Fiddler’s Ferry Power Station. Any closures will have an effect on the output of particular grades of fly ash and furnace bottom ash in the UK but at this stage it is not possible to gauge the full extent of any changes.


The UKQAA will continue to strive to maximise the beneficial use of coal ashes in the UK, whether obtained directly from coal-fired units, or recovered from the many ash stockpiles sited throughout the country.
