Making Effective Use of Coal Ash and Gypsum

The J-POWER Group’s industrial waste consists of 97% coal ash and gypsum from thermal power stations. We recycle 99.9% of coal ash produced in coal-fired thermal power generation, mainly as material for making cement and for land reclamation. We recycle 99.8% of the gypsum and 100% of sulfuric acid produced as byproducts of emissions desulfurization.
