Charah Solutions Inc.

Charah Solutions, Inc. provider of environmental and maintenance services to the power generation industry, has installed its proprietary fly ash beneficiation technology at the company’s Sulphur, Louisiana terminal. The new MP618 Multi-Process technology reduces loss on ignition (LOI), ammonia, activated carbon, and moisture in fly ash.

The technology allows for beneficiation of both wet and dry fly to provide concrete product producers and builders with a reliable source of high-quality Class F fly ash in the greater Lake Charles / Sulphur region. The Sulphur terminal is Charah Solutions’ second barge-supplied location in Southern Louisiana. Its LaPlace, Louisiana, terminal currently serves customers in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

“The launch of the MP618 technology is a significant milestone for Charah Solutions and a game changer for the beneficiation of fly ash,” says Charles Price, President and CEO of Charah Solutions. “Our utility customers now have an innovative, cost-effective solution that doesn’t require a significant capital investment or increase costs to rate payers. Additionally, we now expect to be able to provide a more reliable stream of fly ash to our customers. The launch of this facility highlights the importance of our acquisition of SCB International last year, and is the first of many facilities we expect to install nationwide.”

The MP618 technology has low cost profile, an efficient footprint with self-contained environmental controls that can be deployed in months versus years, and a modular design that can be scaled up or down to increase production based on market demand.

With the functionality to process both wet and dry fly ash, the MP618 technology can be installed at both operating and non-operating power plants, regardless of whether the fly ash is current production or legacy ash stored in ponds or landfills. The technology also allows for the processing of kiln dust to remove mercury for emissions regulations compliance.

MP618 is expected to enhance Charah Solutions’ MultiSource materials network, a unique distribution system of more than 30 nationwide sourcing locations, and improve the company’s ability to provide a continuous and reliable supply of supplementary cementitious materials for ready-mix concrete producers and other customers throughout the U.S.
