Enrichment in concentration of these elements in fly and bottom ash takes place during combustion. Combustion residues containing these elements are a potential source for ecological disrupt. Controlled emission technology and discarding process of ashes in power plants are vital from environmental aspect. Appropriate and secure recycling of ashes is a good alternative of its disposal for financial moreover environmental benefit.
