Charah Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of environmental and maintenance services to the power generation industry, will open a second facility using new patented technologies for grinding granulated blast furnace slag to create supplementary cementitious materials at Watco’s Greens Port Industrial Terminal in Houston, Texas.
“As one of the leading fly ash sales and marketing companies in the country, we are excited to open this facility that will increase access to high-quality SCMs in the Texas and Gulf Coast market, where availability has traditionally been inconsistent,” said Scott Sewell, President & CEO of Charah Solutions.
“Watco’s Greens Port Industrial Terminal is an ideal hub for us to serve our concrete product customers throughout Texas and along the Gulf Coast as we continue to identify additional sites and open new facilities featuring these technologies,” he added.
“This is great news for Texas and surrounding markets where the supply of SCMs can be constrained,” said Scott Ziegler, Vice President of Byproduct Sales at Charah Solutions. “With this facility, Charah Solutions will be able to receive and deliver slag cement by ship and rail consistently year-round without seasonality or outages, and we can easily scale and increase production to meet market demand. The opening of this grinding and distribution facility represents a necessary and creative solution for our customers as we build our presence in Texas and expand our nationwide MultiSource network.”
“Watco is very excited to have Charah Solutions as a long-term partner at GPIT,” added Bill Kinzeler, Vice President of Network Strategy for Watco. “Working together, Charah Solutions will be able to take full advantage of GPIT’s unparalleled dock, rail and road infrastructure to serve their customers.”
