1 6 May ICUFA, WBPCB/GCECT/UNSW Kolkata 10 – 11 January 2013 Near Whitened Fly Ash : UTILIZATION OF AS RECEIVED AND UNSW - DEVELOPED NEAR WHITENED FLY ASH IN VIRGIN WHITE POLYMER POLYPROPYLENE Sri Bandyopadhyay, A Zaeni, U P Singh UNSW SMSE & CIPET LARPM Thanks Prof Binoy K Dutta, Prof S Maitra, Dr G Ghosh & Team

2 6 May Fly ash Fine powder collected as residue in the exhaust gases from combustion chambers of the pulverized coal fired boilers at power plant stations

3 6 May The fly ash morphology, Spherical also irregular

4 6 May Application of Fly ash Fly ash Agriculture Cement / Concrete Polymer composites PolyesterPolyethylene PolypropyleneEpoxy Other Polymer

5 6 May AIMS : Utilization of FA in Composite based Product with Enriched Mechanical Properties New Exp. Conditions Screening of Polymers Modification of FA Addition of Additive Strategies

6 6 May So far the reasons of producing polymer composites using fly ash are : - stiffen the matrix - make it rigid, - lower cost of material, - modify rheological properties, - increase strength properties of polymer

7 6 May Zaeni, Bandyopadhyay et al (1) focussed particle size and distribution, surface morphology, chemical composition, plus colour measurement of several Australian fly ash samples. Further, Zaeni, Bandyopadhyay et al recently developed a method to modify the colour of fly ash from grey black to almost near white (NHFA), to 96 % of the whiteness of calcium carbonate (2). It is believed this will assist the fly ash recycling industry to make better decisions re use of fly ash so far as the colour effect of fly ash products is concerned (see fig 1).

8 6 May Normal v Near- Whitened Fly ash Bottom 100 % PP tensile sample - white in colour; Middle: As received fly ash / PP, dark green in colour; Top: Near whitened fly ash / PP; almost white in colour;

9 Fly Ash P.P.Composites 6 May 20159

10 Mechanical Properties of as received Fly Ash PP Composites 6 May

11 6 May We developed method :Grey black to almost white, within 5 % of calciulm carbonate Average Particle Size 8.3 microns Akhmad Zaeni / Sri Bandyopadhyay

12 6 May Our research past 4 years found new use of fly ash as a filler in plastics replacing natural fillers; Selective fly ash - modified to Near white color – opens up big new applications opportunities

13 6 May Australian Provisional Patent 2009 In March 2009, a standard Australian Patent " A Method for Improving the Colour of Fly Ash" was filed Application number is See next slide for the demonstration of this color change.

14 6 May UNSW – CIPET India Fly ash PP Project May 2010 [ Sri Bandy & S K Nayak ]

15 6 May White fly ash in weight % 5 to 50 with polypropylene

16 6 May

17 6 May Results Notched Impact strength vs Fly Ash wt %

18 6 May PP Only

19 6 May PP Only

20 6 May Scanning electron microscope (SEM) fracture surface of PP – 20 wt % Whitened fly Ash notched impact specimen Mechanism of toughening : Particle debonding and frictional pull-out energies

21 PP – 20% near-whitened fly ash High magnification 6 May

22 6 May PP – 50 % NHFA, High magnification

23 6 May Bright and white products We can use Whitened Fly Ash in very broad areas of engineering, environment, and research. We can revolutionize the use for India and Australia Thanks West Bengal Government Thanks WB Pollution Control Board

24 Conclusion Fly ash can be used as an additive in polymers to as high as 50 % by weight if not more. Both as-received fly ash and near-whitened fly ash can have beneficial effects in tensile modulus and notched impact properties. Scanning electron microscopy of notched impact fracture surfaces show smaller size fly ash particles are embedded in the interlamellar textural matrix of the polymer. 6 May

25 Acknowledgement One part of this presentation is based on a paper by Sri Bandyopadhyay, & Akhmad Zaeni & Dilip Nath et al “Advanced utilization of as received and near whitened fly ash in polypropylene polymer to improve mechanical, notched impact and whiteness colour properties”, International Journal of Plastics Technology, 14, 2010, Supplement 1, 51-56,Advanced utilization of as received and near whitened fly ash in polypropylene polymer to improve mechanical, notched impact and whiteness colour properties”, International Journal of Plastics Technology14, 2010, Supplement 1 DOI: /s The other part (NHFA-PP Impact studies) of the paper is based on a CIPET Faculty Research collaboration program held at UNSW in 2010, approved by CIPET DG Prof Dr Sanjay K Nayak. 6 May
