Merom Plant Extends MultiSource™ Fly Ash Supply Network to Ohio Valley and Midwest
LOUISVILLE, KY (July 6, 2017) – Charah®, LLC, a total solutions company providing unparalleled service and innovation for the coal-fired power generation industry, today announced that it recently secured an exclusive agreement to market the coal combustion products (CCPs) produced by Hoosier Energy’s Merom Generating Station.
As part of this agreement, Charah will sell and market the high quality, specification grade Class F fly ash from Hoosier Energy’s Merom Generating Station in Western Indiana for beneficial use. Available to ship by truck and rail, Charah will market the fly ash to ready mix concrete producers and cement manufacturers throughout Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky, expanding Charah’s MultiSource™ network throughout the Ohio Valley and Midwestern regions.
The 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 concrete products and other applications not only eliminates the need to dispose of fly ash in landfills, it also significantly reduces the overall carbon footprint and conserves our natural resources by replacing materials that would otherwise have to be mined and processed for these products.
“This agreement will help Hoosier Energy introduce fly ash into the market to alleviate availability concerns and allow more products from Merom Station to be beneficially used, reducing landfilled CCP volumes,” stated Will Kaufman, Fuels Manager of Hoosier Energy.
According to Scott Ziegler, Vice President of Ash Sales and Marketing at Charah, “As one of the leading fly ash sales and marketing companies in the country, our innovative solutions and superior service will support Hoosier Energy and their consumers. Our growing MultiSource network also ensures that we are able to provide a steady and reliable supply of ash for the ready mix concrete producers throughout the Merom marketing region.”
