New Refereed Journal to be Published for Ash Community

Coal Combustion and Gasification Products will be a scholarly journal published by the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research and the American Coal Ash Association. The journal will present articles examining the solutions for and uses of coal combustion byproducts.

Lexington, KY and Denver, CO (January 9, 2009) -- The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (UK CAER) and the American Coal Ash Association (ACAA) are pleased to announce the creation of the journal, Coal Combustion and Gasification Products.


Coal Combustion and Gasification Products will be a unique peer-reviewed journal designed to communicate coal ash research and emerging new technologies. The organizations' primary goal is to bring together research that currently is published in disparate sources.

With ash-related environmental concerns currently in the news, this journal emerges as a timely solution for sharing ideas on these complex issues.

This will be an international on-line journal encompassing the science and technology of the production, sustainable utilization, and environmentally-sound handling of the byproducts of coal combustion and gasification. This includes fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag, gasification residue, and byproducts from coal-fuel blends, flue-gas desulfurization products, and related materials.

The journal will appear in two complementary formats. The electronic journal will host full-text papers and previously unpublished articles. Access to the journal will be free of charge, and there will be no charges to authors for page fees or inclusion of supplementary data or color graphics/photos. A printed variation, not a full replica, will be published as an insert to the ACAA's magazine, Ash at Work, published twice a year with a circulation of over 3000. The Ash at Work insert will present shorter material, including abstracts of articles appearing on-line and short articles communicating important research findings.

The journal's editorial board consists of experts from academia, industry, and government who will provide input and reviews of the science and engineering of ash.
