Charah® Solutions Inc has announced plans to set up its third grinding facility for supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in Oxnard, California, USA.

"Charah Solutions is one of the leading fly ash sales and marketing companies in the country and we are proving that further with this new facility that will help stabilise the West Coast market with high-quality SCMs where availability has traditionally been inconsistent," said Scott Sewell, president and CEO of Charah Solutions.

The new Oxnard facility will be operated in partnership with Diversified Minerals, Inc (DMI), a supplier and manufacturer of standard and custom-blend cement and concrete products. The facility will receive natural pozzolan by truck and rail and then, using Charah Solutions' grinding technology, process it and market it under the MultiPozz™ pozzolan brand, according to a press release. 

"Fly ash is becoming more difficult to source in California which is forcing the construction industry to look for viable alternatives. Natural pozzolan and other SCMs that meet ASTM specifications are generating very high interest. With Charah Solutions' resources and DMI’s strategic partnership with the only active pozzolan mine in Southern California, we are both the closest and the first to bring these products to market," said Jim Price, CEO of DMI.
