The present study examines the chemical composition and morphology of raw and acid-digested pond ash samples that were collected from four ash ponds of the Fertilizer Corporation of India Limited, Sindri unit, Jharkhand, India. Scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy were used to analyse the four pond ash samples. The aim of the study was to characterize the pond ash samples in order to assess their utilization based on morphological characteristics. Besides, loss-on-ignition and leaching studies (both with distilled water and under acidic medium conditions) were also conducted to understand the mobility of various elements in the leachates. The information provided herein would be useful to clearly understand the difference in the chemical composition and morphology of the raw and acid digested pond ash samples.
