Charah Solutions opens factory for fly ash and SCMs
18 January 2019

Charah® Solutions, a leading provider of environmental and maintenance services to the power generation industry, has opened its first facility using new patented technologies for grinding granulated blastfurnace slag (GGBS) to create supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs).

Charah Solutions aims to serve customers in markets where the supply of fly ash or other SCMs is limited. The new plant is located at the Port of Coeymans,10 miles south of Albany, 100 miles north of New York, on the Hudson River. From this location, the company will sell concrete product manufacturers throughout the Northeast.

"The Port of Coeymans is an ideal location for us to serve our concrete product customers across the Northeast. The opening of this facility continues to highlight the importance of our acquisition of SCB International last year and is the first of many facilities we expect to install nationwide,"  said Charles Price, president and CEO of Charah Solutions.

Additionally, Charah Solutions' technology can also be used for grinding natural pozzolans to create additional SCMs to replace fly ash and to expand Charah Solutions' byproduct sales offerings.

The new facility will also manufacture slag cement that is marketed under the brand MultiCem™. The MultiCem slag cement will be distributed throughout Charah Solutions' MultiSource® materials network, which is a unique, nationwide distribution system of more than 30 sourcing locations that provide ready-mix concrete producers and other customers a continuous and reliable supply of SCMs, including quality fly ash and slag cement.
