ScotAsh was established in 1999 and is a joint venture between ScottishPower and Lafarge Cement UK. Over the past 12 years ScotAsh has firmly established itself as the UK's leading manufacturer of environmentally friendly cements, grouts, concrete enhancers and waste stabilisation products.

ScotAsh has won many awards which is testimony to what can happen when 2 internationally based companies pool their resources and expertise to develop sustainable materials from the by-products of coal fired power generation. Indeed, the ScotAsh model has played a key role in discussions with other power plant operators in other parts of the world. The use of electrostatic fly ash beneficiation technology was the first example outside of the United States and this has allowed for the development of a number of cementitious markets based on low carbon fly ash.

The Concrete Technology Unit (CTU) was established in 1989 and has grown into a world class research Centre of Excellence. Dundee has state-of-the-art research facilities covering chemical and physical analysis of materials and their properties in relation to potential market applications.
