Lexington, SC (PRWEB) June 30, 2016
The SEFA Group is now marketing the first recycled fly ash from Keystone Generating Station in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania. SEFA entered a multiyear arrangement with Keystone-Conemaugh Projects to market and sell the Generating Station’s fly ash for beneficial reuse.
“We’re pleased to be recycling this byproduct as an environmentally-beneficial material in concrete construction, and making a positive impact for future generations,” remarked Dave Benson, Chief Operating Officer for Keystone-Conemaugh.
The SEFA Group engineered and constructed a facility to load and transport the recycled product, and began sales of the material on June 1. “We are now able to support the Ready Mixed Concrete and Concrete Products industries in Pennsylvania, New York, and West Virginia,” commented Bert Nunn, VP of Fly Ash Sales & Marketing for The SEFA Group. “Fly ash is important to these industries because it improves the performance characteristics of concrete and also reduces the environmental footprint of concrete as a finished product.”
Fly ash, a material similar to volcanic ash, is a byproduct of the coal combustion process and is in demand for concrete construction. For each ton of fly ash used in place of traditional cement, the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is nearly equivalent, while improving the durability and sustainability of concrete.
