Luminant awarded Charah Solutions a three-year contract extension to provide fly ash sales and material handling operations for its Miami Fort and Zimmer power plants in southern Ohio through 2027, when both plants are expected to retire. Charah Solutions will continue to manage the on-site landfill and impoundment operations under its existing contract with Luminant, including material loading, hauling and disposal of approximately 180,000 tons of ash annually from both plants for an additional three years through 2027. In addition, Charah Solutions will be responsible for the beneficiation and utilization of approximately 400,000 tons of fly ash each year.
The company has the right to sell and market 100% of the high quality, specification grade Class F fly ash from both power plants for beneficial use via the company’s MultiSource materials network. Using its nationwide truck, rail and barge shipping platform, Charah Solutions recycles and markets the fly ash to concrete product manufacturers and ready-mix concrete producers, which use the product as a substitute for Portland cement.
Scott Sewell, Charah Solutions president and CEO, said, “We have been proud to partner with Luminant on its sustainability efforts for many years and are delighted to extend our relationship at these Ohio sites through 2027. We have dramatically reduced the need to landfill fly ash at Miami Fort and Zimmer through our ongoing partnership, saving Luminant both expense and valuable landfill space while lowering their risk. Charah Solutions is nationally recognized in the power generation industry as a total solutions company, providing unparalleled service and innovation to meet the evolving and increasingly complex needs of our utility partners. As a result of this expanded agreement, Charah Solutions will continue to provide a reliable supply of high-quality fly ash to ready mix concrete producers in the Midwest, Northeast and deep South through our MultiSource network.”
