03 May 2018

The UK Quality Ash Association (UKQAA) has appointed Tarmac's Allan Everett as the association's new chair, taking over from Power Minerals' Ivan Skidmore who spent four years in the role.
The UKQAA is the UK's leading authority on the use of quality ash in construction and engineering applications and represents a range of members from across the construction supply chain.
Allan Everett, also Tarmac’s ash business manager, will help steer the association and work with its membership, to promote and secure the use of quality ash in construction and engineering applications.
Allan Everett, said: "The UKQAA has a vital role to play in the construction sector in the coming years – particularly as the industry steps up to deliver big projects such as HS2 and major road schemes. These projects place huge demands on the concrete industry where quality ash is often a critical material, but we're aware of the availability issues coal fired power station closures pose to us."
Allan will be joined by Richard Boult who has also been announced as the UKQAA's new Technical Committee Chair. Richard is commercial technical manager at Cemex UK Cement, he will work with UKQAA's Technical Committee members to develop and assess technical projects exploring new sources and uses for quality ash.
