ST Equipment & Technology LLC Continues Expansion to Asia

NEEDHAM, MASS. – Officials at ST Equipment & Technology LLC (STET) announced that they have finalized an agreement for the purchase and installation of a fly ash beneficiation unit at the Samchoenpo Power Station by Korea South-East Power Co., Ltd. (KOEN), a subsidiary of Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO).

KEPCO is the largest electric utility in Korea, responsible for 93% of the country’s electricity generation. The separation and processing unit will be used to beneficiate fly ash produced by all Units the Samchoenpo Power Station. The beneficiation plant is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion during the first half of 2019.

STET’s world-leading green technology converts fly ash, an industrial waste produced from the burning of coal, into two useful products:
  • a standard building material (ProAsh®), used in the construction sector
  • a consistent supply of fuel (EcoTherm™), useful for the coal burning industry
The STET fly ash beneficiation process results in a profitable activity that contributes to environmental protection by,
  • reducing the need for land filling and extend the life of existing landfills
  • saving energy
  • reducing the quarrying of raw materials
  • reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions

The project has been warmly welcomed by the local authorities and community in Korea for its contribution to sustainable development.
