AbstractCoal ashes exhibit four general classes of properties that are potentially exploitable for profit, namely: chemical, physical, pozzolanic, and minerealogical {or morphological} properties. This paper assesses the potential of coal combustion wastes {CCW} utilization as a low-cost ion exchange and sorbent material in pollution control and removal of heavy metals and phospherous from wastewaters. This may provide a cost effective alternative for the treatment of heavy metal contaminated soil and water.
