“Fly ash is one of the industrial byproducts, which needs to be effectively used in construction activities. Andhra Pradesh generates nearly 10% of the total fly ash in the country and thus, it is imperative to work out a meaningful strategy in this regard. In order to ensure this, orders were issued by the government for a gradual switch over to pozzolana/slag cement in the construction activities taken up through different government departments. This is to be viewed in the perspective of our endeavor for achieving sustainable development and environmental protection”.
