Thermal Power companies in Odisha will now have to transport fly ash free of cost to road construction site located within 100 kms perimeter of their plant.

The decision in this regard was taken at the joint meeting between NTPC and State Pollution Control Board at Bhubaneswar on 8 January 2016.


For this purpose, a law will be formulated to ensure that the plants that generate fly ash will make arrangement for transportation of the material to work site free of cost. This will help the contractor involved in road construction to utilise the plant residue without putting an additional burden.

The utilization of the fly ash over last 3 years has been around 58-60 percent in the State. In the country, annual utilization of fly ash in road construction is about 8.82 million ton, which is around 16 percent of total utilization.
