Charah to supply fly ash for readymix

Louisville-based Charah has signed new contracts related to three LG&E and KU Energy plants.

The contracts are long-term agreements to market and sell fly ash from LG&E and KU Energy’s Mill Creek Generating Station in Louisville, Trimble County Generating Station and Ghent Generating Station in Carroll County.

Charah plans to market the fly ash from all three facilities to ready-mix concrete producers across the Midwest, according to a news release. The value of these contracts was not disclosed, but I have requested that information from a company representative.

The release said fly ash was validated as a viable construction material to replace cement in the production of concrete-related products by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in a February 2014 report. A few weeks back, I wrote about how Charah is using coal plant byproducts in the production of fertilizer.

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