A long-term agreement to manage and market coal combustion products (CCP) from Dynegy Inc. generating stations in Moscow (Zimmer Power) and North Bend (Miami Fort), Ohio, enables Charah to ship Class F fly ash by truck or rail to Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Pennsylvania ready mixed and manufactured-concrete producers. The CCP management specialist will also market the stations’ bottom ash and contract for other material handling at each.

“This agreement will help move [us] toward 100 percent beneficial re-use of our byproducts,” says Dynegy Manager of Byproducts and Reagents Todd Stinson. “Charah’s presence in the Ohio River region and broad terminal network will be a major factor of achieving this goal.”

“As the largest privately-held fly ash sales and CCP management company in the United States, [we are] pleased to enter this multi-plant agreement with Dynegy,” adds Charah CEO Charles Price. “We believe our innovative solutions and superior service will continue to pay dividends for utility partners and their consumers. Furthermore, we will be able to ensure a steady and reliable supply of ash for concrete producers during a time of substantial change in the utility industry.”
