Coal Combustion Product Utilization in Thailand Authors Ms. Chattrawadee Netwong - Thailand - Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) Ms. Nawamonwan Sirima - Thailand - Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) Mr. Chalermphol Bunsong - Thailand - Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) Ms. Umaporn Thong-Eiam - Thailand - Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) Abstract In recent years, the coal combustion product (CCP) industry has gained significant attention worldwide as a sustainable solution to both environmental challenges and economic opportunities. In Thailand, the management and utilization of CCPs such as fly ash, bottom ash, and FGD gypsum have emerged as important factors in shaping the energy and construction sectors. This article offers a concise overview of the current state of CCP utilization in Thailand, emphasizing its significance and potential for growth. Thailand's power generation sector relies on coal-fired power plants, which generate substantial quantities of CCPs. The increasing demand for energy and the commitment to reduce carbon emissions make the efficient utilization of CCPs crucial. Fly ash, comprising 81% of the total CCPs generated, is sold as a cement substitute in embankment projects, leading Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) to become a leader with over half of the market share. Bottom ash has become a valuable resource in road construction. Moreover, FGD gypsum is increasingly used in cement production, agriculture, and the fiber cement industry, reducing the need for virgin gypsum. The adoption of CCPs not only conserves natural resources but also supports Thailand's goal of building a more sustainable and circular economy. This abstract serves as an overview of the potential that exists in further enhancing the CCP industry in Thailand and underscores the importance of government policies to facilitate its continued CCPs development. By embracing the sustainable use of CCPs, Thailand can advance its environmental protection, reduce waste, and strengthen its position in driving towards a greener future.
