Marketing of Fly Ash
Utilizing fly ash in concrete and other products not only eliminates the need to dispose of fly ash in landfills but also conserves our natural resources by substituting for materials that would typically be mined. In addition, the beneficial use of CCPs can meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program requirements.
Charah currently markets fly ash in multiple states for:
- Partial replacement of cement in ready mix concrete and concrete products including concrete block, concrete pipe and precast concrete products.
- Flowable fill projects including filling old sewer pipes and underground tanks instead of excavating for replacement.
- Bagging of dry materials for use in the do-it-yourself market including concrete repair, patching and new surface applications.
- Soil stabilization for bearing capacity improvement.
- Solidification and drying of non-toxic wastes for delivery to approved landfills.
Charah is also able to design and install dry ash conversion systems for fly ash to support the development of ash marketing programs and to eliminate wet slurry ash handling systems.
Charah has formed Ash Venture LLC, a joint venture with Separation Technologies LLC, to provide the most consistent and reliably available low-carbon fly ash. This fly ash allows for better control of concrete mixtures, fewer batch-plant and job-site delays, fewer rejected loads of concrete and superior, predictable in-place concrete properties.
