US-based Charah®, Inc., has entered into a long-term agreement with Louisville Gas and Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities Company (LG&E and KU) to sell and market flyash from three of its facilities. Coal combustion products (CCPs) generated at the Mill Creek Generating Station in southwest Jefferson County, Trimble County Generating Station, northeast of Louisville in Trimble County, and Ghent Generating Station northeast of Carrollton, Kentucky, will be marketed at ready mix concrete producers in the Midwest. This will provide the producers with ASTM C618 Class F flyash, whilst also preventing the CCPs from ending up as landfill.
“As one of the largest companies involved in managing CCPs not just in Kentucky but throughout the United States, Charah is delighted to enter into this multi-plant effort with LG&E and KU. We believe that our innovative solutions will continue to pay dividends for our utility partners and their consumers, and we are proud to have been LG&E and KU’s partner since 1998. Furthermore, we will be able to ensure a steady and reliable supply of ash for the ready mix concrete producers during a time of substantial change in the utility and flyash industry,” commented Charles Price, Charah President and CEO.
