Falling for Fly Ash

Fall in love with your fly ash.

Love is in the air, thanks to Valentine’s Day occurring this month. Most people believe that Valentine’s Day was created by greeting card companies in order to increase sales, but in reality Valentine’s Day was created to commemorate St. Valentine, who reportedly passed away around this time in 270 A.D.

What does Love have to do with fly ash?

We can learn a valuable lesson from the life of St. Valentine: don’t blindly accept what is presented to you at surface value. Dig a little deeper, to find the truth. ST Equipment & Technology’s Triboelectrostatic benefication process does precisely this for your fly ash.

Based on a survey conducted by the American Coal Ash Association (ACAA), between 1966 and 2011, more than 2.3 billion short-tons of fly ash were produced by coal-fired power plants. Of that, only about 625 million tons of fly ash were actually used in a beneficial manner. Even with new technologies that help to reduce those numbers, it is estimated that about 40 million tons of pulverized coal fly ash is still disposed of annually.

That’s about to change.

Our environmentally responsible, water-free system can liberate particles less than 500 microns in size. This means you not only get different grades of usable material from your fly ash waste stream—which can provide you with greater profits from the same material you’re currently processing—it’s good for the environment, as well.

What’s not to love about that?

Additionally, our separation process can handle high-volume input to produce high-value concrete applications with a lower carbon footprint. If that sounds like a match made in heaven for your business, contact us and let’s pair up. We think it’s the beginning of a beautiful relationship, even if St. Valentine isn’t involved.
