3 ProfilePh.D. IIT Delhi 1981 on Metal Oxide Catalysts: Petroleum Hydrocarbons (Petrol) from Methyl Alcohol likewise.Ex- faculty to Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Illinois USA and University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.6 Patents including the “Development of the process for the “Manufacture of pond ash based un-sintered light weight aggregates”.Chaired a Session Chair in an important event like 15th International American Coal Ash Association Symposium at St. Petersburg, Florida, USA.Had been invited for three consecutive years from 1996 to 1998 to Chair Sessions in American Power Conference, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago.
4 LORD SHIVA IS THE FIRST PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE TO USE SISTER OF FLY ASH – THE ASHHE APPLIED IT TO HIS BODY
5 Translation of new ideas given in NTPC turned into reality: Year 1985 and onwards……
6 Responsible for Accomplishing First time in NTPC: Introduced the Concept of Fly ash bricks by showing Fly ash bricks in 1985: Introduced the Fly ash bricks concept to NTPC vide “R&D Project F-401, 1983”, completed by me at National Council for Cement and Building Materials (NCB, New Delhi). Manufacture of fly ash bricks: Completed first trials of manufacture of fly ash bricks at BTPS ash pond in 1987 and then produced steam-cured bricks in at M/s Hindustan Pre-fab Limited , New Delhi. Clay Fly Bricks: By conducting studies it was proved in that BTPS and Korba ash are suitable for the manufacture of Clay Fly bricks.
7 Responsible for Accomplishing First time in NTPC: Fly ash based Road: By constructing Test Track (road) at BTPS ash dyke, it was proved that there is saving of about 60% and 9% in the construction of sub-base course and base course respectively, as a CBIP Project-1993. Fly ash based lightweight aggregates: Developed the process for the manufacture of lightweight aggregates for making concrete using fly ash (PATENT No ).Introduction of Cenosphere Concept, 1988.
8 Responsible for Accomplishing First time in NTPC: Mine filling: based on the experience acquired in USA, arranged to initiate and then accomplished the Systematic study for filling ash in mines for the first time. Based on the exhaustive work of “Ash Utilization Cell of R&D Department- Group Head- Dr. S. K. Dube”; NTPC created a New Department known as“Ash Utilization Division” in 1991.
9 Certain Technical Developments (New Products And Processes) and Patents etc.(I): Development of Oil well cements using fly ash for class G and class J for the applications up to the depths of 4000 & 8000 meter (1982).Development of non-shrinking (expansive) cement(1982)Development of fly ash bricks manufacture in 1983.Development of process for manufacture of fly ash bricks for the fly as produced from Singrauli, Korba, Ramagundam and Farakka stations of NTPCDevelopment of a process for the manufacture of lightweight aggregates for making concrete using fly ash (PATENT No /2003).
10 Certain Technical Developments (New Products And Processes) and Patents etc. (II): The Construction of road using fly ash and bottom ash and bringing down the expenditure by more than 55%.Development of Grouts for backfilling of underground mines.Development of Lightweight jute bags for packing cement for implementation in the cement industry.Development of Process for the manufacture of oxalic acid using Sarkanda (Sacchrum-Munja: a type of wild grass) with yield level of 40%.Successful pilot plant trials for the manufacture of Geo-Polymer Fly ash bricks.

21 Acid Mine Drainage Eastern U.S. bituminous coals can contain pyrite When oxidized and exposed to water, pyrite creates sulfuric acid and Fe++Major Environmental problem in Appalachian coal fields.Alkaline CCBs are used in the abatement and prevention of AMD
22 Ash haulback Coal Combustion Byproducts are hauled back to mines to: Be used as alkaline amendments and bulk fill materials in surface miningFill mine voids in deep mines to prevent acid mine drainage and subsidenceAsh haulback arrangements are becoming common practice with Appalachian Coal and Utilities.
