It is all about STORAGE.
A simple analogy, coal ash storage is like trying to organize your closet in an endless battle to fit ever more stuff into little space. However, unlike your closet problem utility companies cannot get rid of those unneeded belongings (coal ash), or sign on the dotted line for storage-unit lease (landfills).
Beneficiation has provided some relief to this conundrum. Nevertheless, beneficiation time-frames greatly extend beyond desired regulatory and environmental protection time-frames. So the issue of storage still takes center-stage.
Another form of relief are solutions that use coal ash as a construction fill material (on-site or off-site). Here at EnCAP-IT we specialize in solutions that maximize the use of space; always by making the most of every single acre, yard, or foot of available land for storage. Our safeBERM®, safeSTORAGE® and safeREUSE™ patented, green solutions can use coal ash (other materials also) as construction fill in a protective, efficient, and economic manner.
Our solutions take full advantage of coal ash characteristics that at times are overlooked;
Primary decomposition is complete
Although we have been locked in coal ash trench warfare for over a decade, we can all agree on a few things;
Coal Ash is a waste.
The amount of land on this planet is fixed.
There is an abundance of coal ash needing proper storage.
