Charah® Solutions Inc has announced that it will use its patented grinding technology in a new facility to grind granulated blast furnace slag (GBFS) for supplementary cementitious materials. The unit will be located at Watco's Greens Port Industrial Terminal (GPIT) on the Houston ship channel and is expected to be operational in the 3Q19.

"As one of the leading fly ash sales and marketing companies in the country, we are excited to open this facility that will increase access to high-quality SCMs in the Texas and Gulf Coast market, where availability has traditionally been inconsistent," said Scott Sewell, president and CEO, Charah Solutions.

GPIT will receive GBFS by ship and then use Charah Solutions' unit to manufacture slag cement marketed under the MultiCem™ brand, according to a press release. MultiCem will then be distributed throughout Charah Solutions' MultiSource materials network of more than 30 nationwide locations that provide ready-mix concrete producers and other customers with a supply of SCMs.
