Ekibastuz SDPP-2 plant launched an investment project for the selection and sale of dry ash.
The capacity of the dry ash removal system is about 200 000 tons a month. This investment project gives opportunity to considerably reduce the volume of ash sent to ash disposal area and use it in the implementation of important projects such as road construction, production of building materials, concrete mixtures, etc.
Today Ekibastuz SDPP-2 has already entered into a number of agreements with Kazakhstani companies. Shipment of dry ash has already began. The facility holds negotiations with representatives of companies from the far and near abroad.
Fly ash of Ekibastuz coal has nearly zero harmful impurities; it is homogeneous in chemical composition and dispersity, does not include unburned coal particles, high carbon content and can be used in the production of concrete and other building materials instead of quartz sand. Low radiation background which makes the ash environmentally friendly is also among important advantages.
