Charah® Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of environmental services and byproduct recycling to the power generation industry, today announced that it has been awarded a multi-year contract from an Indiana regulated utility for the marketing and sustainable recycling of fly ash. The multi-year project will begin in Q3 2022.
Under the terms of the contract, Charah Solutions will be responsible for the utilisation of approximately 150 000 tpy of specification grade fly ash. The fly ash will be distributed through Charah Solutions’ MultiSource® materials network, a unique distribution system of nearly 40 nationwide locations, with international sourcing and distribution. The MultiSource network provides a continuous and reliable supply of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) to cement and concrete producers to make concrete, as well as to other customers who beneficially reuse the products. It is anticipated that 100% of the fly ash will be shipped by truck to markets in the Midwest.
As a sustainability leader in utility services for over 30 years, Charah Solutions is dedicated to preserving our natural resources in an environmentally-conscious manner through ash recycling and marketing projects. Sustainability is a core value at Charah Solutions and the Company’s business is focused on developing innovative solutions to complex environmental issues for the betterment of the planet, the communities in which it operates and its customers. The beneficial use of fly ash in concrete products offers benefits in both the hardened and plastic state of concrete. In addition to improving the finish product quality, using fly ash in green concrete products and other applications not only eliminates the need to dispose of fly ash in landfills, but also significantly reduces overall carbon footprint and conserves natural resources by replacing materials that would otherwise have to be mined and processed for these products. This recycled fly ash will contribute to meeting Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) member companies’ commitment to producing carbon neutral concrete by 2050.
“Charah Solutions is nationally recognised in the power generation industry as a total solutions company, providing unparalleled service and innovation in a sustainable manner to meet the evolving and increasingly complex needs of our utility partners,” said Scott Sewell, Charah Solutions President and CEO. “We are delighted to partner with this Indiana regulated utility to manage their ash marketing needs while supplying our concrete producers with the high-quality material they require and holding true to our environmental commitments and goals to reduce carbon footprint.”
