The 2011 World of Coal Ash (WOCA)Conference
which combines formerly hosted symposia by both the University of Kentucky's Center for Applied Energy Research (the former International Ash Utilization Symposium) and the American Coal Ash Association (the former ACAA International Symposium), will be held from

in Denver, Colorado at the Mariott Tech Center.
More information can be found at the World of Coal Ash Web site.
The International Ash Utilization Symposia are a series of biennial symposia covering all aspects of coal combustion by-product utilization. These symposia provide a forum for the transfer of information and new ideas to benefit the innovative utilization, handling, storage and disposal of CCBs. The symposia are organized by the Center for Applied Energy Research at the University of Kentucky. The attendees include worldwide representation from academia, industry, and government.
The World of Coal Ash is the premier conference concerning the science, applications and sustainability of coal ash utilization. A wide-range of coal combustion products/byproducts (CCP)/(CCB)/(CUB) related topics including mining applications, research, sustainability, FGD (flue gas desulfurization) material, synthetic gypsum, fly ash, bottom ash, fluidized bed combustion and gasfication will be covered. This event is organized and hosted by the American Coal Ash Association (ACAA) and the University of Kentucky's Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER).
