Salt River Materials Group (SRMG) and electricity operator PacifiCorp have entered a Fly Ash Marketing Agreement covering Rocky Mountain Power’s Huntington plant in Utah, located about 150 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. It provides exclusive rights to process and market the facility’s ASTM C618 Class F fly ash, and becomes the ninth such agreement in an SRMG management and marketing portfolio spanning Utah, Arizona and New Mexico coal-fired generating stations.
Huntington output will add to the 17 million tons of fly ash SRMG has finished and shipped for beneficial use since 1973. By investing significant capital to install new beneficiating equipment, the producer will have the capacity to process 100 percent of the station’s fly ash—processing presently nonmarketed material into consistent, high‐quality binder available to meet concrete market needs. Scheduled to go on‐line in the spring 2021, the Huntington operation stands to yield an additional 250,000 tons of fly ash that otherwise is absent from the current Intermountain and Southwest state supply chain. Initial marketing plans will focus on fly ash customers in Utah, Southern Nevada, and Idaho.
