  • Coal - General/Education/History - from CAER's coal links
  • Coal - Associations/Organizations - from CAER's coal links
  • Kentucky Ash Education Site - a resource that discusses coal combustion by-products (CCBs) such as CCB basics, research, utilization, economic and environmental importance, and potential future use.
  • Charah Environmental Inc. - ash management company that provides expertise in landfill, structural fill, bottom ash processing and marketing of coal ash by-products.
