Originally organized in 1999 as the World Wide Coal Combustion Product Council, the WWCCPN is the result of on-going international collaboration to promote, coordinate and inform the public, industry and governmental entities about the beneficial environmental, technical and commercial uses of coal combustion products (CCPs). Members of the network have been consulting with each other for several years to identify common problems and more effectively communicate the results of their continuing research and implementation of new beneficial CCP applications.
Since its beginning, a number of international organizations have signed on to the WWCCPN Charter. Signatories are:
American Coal Ash Association (ACAA)
Ash Development Association of Australia (ADAA)
Asian Coal Ash Association (AsianCAA)
China Coal Ash Professional Committee (CCAPC)
Coal Ash Institute of India (CAII)
European Coal Combustion Products Association (ECOBA)
Informational & Analytical Center "Ecology of Power Engineering" of Moscow Power Engineering Institute (IACEE MPEI)
Japan Coal Energy Center (JCOAL)
National Coal Ash Board, Israel (NCAB)
Polish CCP Union (UPS)
South African Coal Ash Assocation (SACAA)
UK Quality Ash Association (UKQAA)
In early 2007, a meeting among charter signatories as well as assocition organizations from Poland, Russia and Mexico, was held at the World of Coal Ash in Covington, Kentucky, USA. This discussion finalized the need and implementation for a WWCCPN website for information exchange. The results, of which, you are now viewing. The aim of this website is to grow awareness of the benefits of CCP utilization to the environment, industry, world economies and the development of enhanced sustainability.
