The utilization of coal generates tons of solid waste, including fly ash and coal gangue, which occupies a huge amount of land and causes serious environmental problems, such as water and air pollution. In addition, the resource materials that remain in the solid waste, including Al, Si and Li, cannot be well utilized, which wastes resources. Our research focuses on the utilization of coal-based solid waste and a series of technologies that have been developed to undertake that work.
