Abstract: In Germany, hard coal fly ash has been used as a concrete addition for more than forty years. Based on extensive research work on laboratory and real scale on the possible uses and benefits the use of fly ash in concrete is well proven and regulated by national and European standards and regulations. Every year more than 3.5 million tonnes of fly ash are used as concrete addition. This is based on the positive effects of fly ash on the properties of fresh and hardened concrete. However, due to new test procedures and requirements there is still a need for research.

Over the last years several research projects concerning the use of fly ash in concrete were funded by VGB Research. At present, the research work focuses the durability of fly ash concrete, the sustainability as well as application research. This paper deals with recent results from research work regarding the durability of fly ash concrete.
