Fossil Services

Charah Solutions Maintenance and Technical Services segment includes Fossil Services, the mission-critical, daily on-site management of coal ash for coal-fired power generation facilities.

Our Maintenance and Technical Services segment offerings are most closely associated with the ongoing operations of power plants. Whether in the form of daily environmental management or daily on-site maintenance and outage services, our teams are embedded within our customers facilities working side-by-side with their staff to ensure smooth and efficient operations of some of their most valuable generation assets.

Our Fossil Services offerings focus on recurring and mission-critical management of coal ash for coal-fired power generation facilities to fulfill an environmental service need of our customers in handling their waste byproducts. Coal ash management is mission-critical to the daily operations of power plants as they generally only have on-site storage capacity for three to four days of coal combustion residuals (CCR) waste accumulation. These services include silo management, on-site ash transportation, landfill management and capture and disposal of ash byproduct from coal power operations. These operations cover management of a wide variety of combustion byproducts including bottom ash, flue gas desulfurization gypsum disposal, Pozatec/fixated scrubber sludge disposal and fluidized bed combustion fly ash disposal. We coordinate all aspects of the ash management operation, from processing and screening for sales to facilitating an economical disposal.
