Fly ash and bottom ash are fundamentally the products of the chemistry, petrology, and mineralogy of the input fuel, both the coal and any noncoal fuel, and the nature of the combustion or gasification system. In this chapter, the basic properties of ashes from both combustion and gasification are outlined.
