Abstract: In Europe, coal combustion products (CCPs) are mainly utilised as a replacement for natural materials in the building material industry, in civil engineering, in road construction, for construction work in underground coal mining as well as for recultivation and restoration purposes in open cast mines. The majority of the CCPs is produced to meet certain requirements of standards or other specifications with respect to utilisation in certain areas.

The utilisation of fly ash in Europe is being influenced by legislation (Waste Directive, REACH Regulation). The use of CCPs has several environmental and technical benefits. It has developed by the years and is based on requirements of standards or other specifications which are subject to regular revision by CEN or national authorities. The paper focuses the changes in the revised Waste Directive, the requirements according to the REACH regulation as well as the revision of European standards EN 450 fly ash for concrete.
