It has been developed an industrial technology for production of a new generation of  building materials – Artificial Porous Wood based on the mixture of fly ash (the by-product of power plants) and plastics waste. The commercialization of the developed technology should considerable reduce the environmental burden on local Baikal-Irkutsk region by recycling of large amount of mineral and organic solid waste.
