Charah contracts extend C618-grade ash options for Midwest producers

Coal combustion products (CCP) management specialist Charah has entered into or renewed agreements involving three Louisville Gas & Electric Co. and Kentucky Utilities Co. facilities: Mill Creek Generating Station in Jefferson County, Trimble County Generating Station, and Ghent Generating Station near Carrollton, Ky.

It expects to market the stations’ fly ash to ready mixed producers throughout the Midwest, providing them multiple supply options of high quality, ASTM C618 Class F product. The company underscores the dual benefit of marketing concrete-grade ash, as it reduces carbon dioxide emissions attributable to the partial replacement of portland cement, and landfill-bound material volume.

“We believe our innovative solutions will continue to pay dividends for our utility partners and their consumers, and are proud to have been LG&E and KU’s partner since 1998,” says Charah CEO Charles Price. “We will be able to ensure a steady and reliable supply of ash for the ready mixed concrete producers during a time of substantial change in the utility and fly ash industry.”
