PROF. DEPARTMENT OF ARGICULTUREENGINEERING, SWAMI VIVEKANAND UNIVERSITY SGAR, MPABSTRACT –In the recent past huge amount of Fly ash and Pond ash are generated by the thermal power plants. It is a major cause of concern for the people living around the power plants. The current rate of deposition of Pond ash in India has reached 170 million tons per annum. About 90,000 acres of precious land is used for the storage of abandoned Pond ash. But current rate of utilization of ash is only about 35-40%.The unused ash leads to an ever increasing pounding area for storing ash and related environmental issues for the people around the power plants.Besides this, over the last few years, the construction of highways and roads has taken a boost. This requires a huge amount of natural soil and aggregates to excavate or to be deposited. Again this is an environmental issue and economical too. These are some issues now-a-days which motivates in development of alternative methods to overcome those environmental and also the economic issues. This leads to the reuse of suitable industrial byproducts which can fix those issues and also fulfill the specifications. Pond ash is one such byproduct. It is a non-plastic and lightweightmaterial.
