Summary of "Progressive utilisation prospects of coal fly ash: A review."

The rapid surge in global energy needs has paved way for the development of various alternatives to natural resources every now and then. However, dependence on coal-based energy has not reduced greatly. Thus, massive quantities of coal fly ash (CFA) are generated worldwide, which is a serious threat to ecology owing to constraints associated with its storage and disposal. There exists a pressing and ongoing need to develop new, and green product streams from CFA to reduce the threat to the environment. The present review begins with an emphasis on the generation, physicochemical properties, and potential dangers of CFA. Then, it focuses on impending applications such as synthesis of geopolymers (alternative to cement), silica aerogels (insulating materials), carbon nanotubes (carbon allotropes) for electronic devices, and the separation of radioactive isotopes as well as rare earth elements from CFA. Furthermore, the review analyses factors restraining the motive for effective management strategies that drives utilisation of CFA (either in raw and processed state) for new product streams. Finally, the review elucidates the role of CFA as an emerging input in delivering eco-friendly amenities and future derivatives.

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
