THE ISSUE OF COAL ASH

Today, there are more than two billion tons of coal ash in the ground in the U.S. – and there is a concern that it could leach into our water system. How can utilities and other ash-producing facilities remediate the situation? Cap in place is being challenged as an option. Excavating and hauling has its own concerns – and is expensive. But there is a proven, cost-effective solution for excavating and safely storing coal combustion residuals (CCR). EnCAP-IT.

SOLUTION:

EnCAP-IT currently has patented, safe, and cost-effective coal ash management solutions. With our simple, sensible approach, we excavate, and then use our solutions and techniques to fully contain the CCR. Options include safer storage in a landfill or reuse of the ash as a fill in impermeable berms. The cost savings can be significant. And since we have deep knowledge and experience across the spectrum for solving the issue of coal ash, you can turn to us for strategic support as well.

safeBERM® Solutions

This solution promotes the use of Encapsulated Mechanically Stabilized Earthen (“eMSE”) berms in which the berm fill is fully encapsulated using a geomembrane liner system to proactively control infiltration. The eMSE berm innovation allows the owner to configure the berm as deemed most technically and economically appropriate.

A safer, better and cheaper method to construct MSE berms, levees, dams and dikes than traditional methods.
