John Daniels, a professor of civil and environmental engineering and chair of the National Ash Management Advisory Board, will present “How UNC Charlotte is Advancing the Research, Practice and Policy of Coal Ash Management” at 12:30 p.m., Monday, March 14, in EPIC, G256.
Coal ash is a construction material and desirable product with a litany of useful applications. It's also the nation's second largest "solid waste" stream, behind municipal garbage. Daniels will review challenges and opportunities in coal ash management while also summarizing the unique portfolio of ash-related activities and research at UNC Charlotte.
As a researcher, Daniels has focused on the physical and chemical controls on soils and industrial byproducts, with a focus on coal fly ash. His work making soil and ash water repellent is nationally recognized.
