The article presents the results of studying samples from the ash and slag storages of Thermal Power Plants and Central Processing Plants in Kuzbass. Coal processing and flotation wastes from the Kemerovskaya Regional Power Station, the Novo-Kemerovskaya, Kuznetskaya, Kemerovskaya and Yuzhno-Kuzbasskaya Thermal Power Plant as well as the Berezovskaya Central Processing Plant have been analyzed using the XRD technique. Results of particle size distribution tests of ash and slag wastes are presented based on the samples collected at thermal power and processing plants of the Kemerovo region. The possibility to use these waste materials as feedstock for production of construction materials is assessed with account of their identified properties. Recommendations are formulated for the practical application of these industrial wastes. In particular, using of small fractions of ashes and slags as solid aggregates in production of construction mixtures seems promising, however, the dynamics of spatial and temporal variations in particle size distribution of this type of raw materials at specific ash dumps needs to be taken into account.
