Ash from power plants, such as coal ash or biomass ash, causes tremendous air pollution and mostly ends up in landfills as harmful waste. It costs millions of USD per plant a year to dispose them. So far, the only way to recycle them is to recycle them as asphalt or concrete. We are the only supplier in the world to recycle such ash into multi-functional chemical composites, for filters, masks, absorbent for oil spills, soil improvements, cosmetics, beauty products, water treatment, and more. We have already completed two projects in Japan and Asia.
