In June, the WOCA 2022 award winners were announced. WOCA is an international conference organized by the American Coal Ash Association (ACAA) and the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER). The 2022 conference, held at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, Ky., was the 9th joint biennial meeting with a focus on the science, applications and sustainability of worldwide coal combustion products (CCPs) as well as gasification products. Attendees represented marketers and end-users, environmental “green” businesses, architects, engineers, contractors, concrete producers, waste and disposal delegates, researchers, and governmental representatives.
