Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Disposal Services
Changing regulatory requirements for coal ash disposal make a trusted partner more important than ever. One thing is certain in the changing world of Coal Combustion Residuals: Regulatory requirements will make disposal requirements more stringent and complex in coming years than they have ever been in the past. A partner whose core business has focused on CCR management for decades can be invaluable in that evolving environment.
Headwaters Plant Services is the undisputed leader in Coal Combustion Residuals management. Through its affiliates and predecessor companies, HPS has more experience than any other company in managing CCRs of all types. Services are tailored to the need of individual clients, ranging from managing specific aspects of CCR disposal to providing complete turnkey operations and maintenance services that handle all aspects of operations, from CCR collection to final disposal.
Coal Combustion Residuals management is not a sideline activity for Headwaters Plant Services. It is, and always has been, the company’s core business.
The numbers tell the story:
- More than 15 million tons of material under contract for management annually
- More than 100 utility locations served
- Experience constructing material handling facilities of all sizes, up to four million tons of CCRs annually
- Experience constructing and operating landfills of all sizes up to 200 acres
More important than size, though, is HPS’ experience in developing and using industry best practices to ensure regulatory compliance and cost-effective operations. For instance, HPS utilizes the most advanced GPS equipment to ensure that disposal facilities are constructed according to plans and at least cost.
HPS also maintains strategic relationships that ensure access to the most up-to-date equipment, including partnering agreements with two national heavy equipment suppliers and a partnering agreement with a leading national truck supplier.
Finally, no other company offers the capabilities HPS has already demonstrated for completing projects that will become increasingly common in the coming years, including conversions from wet to dry disposal methods and developing integrated programs to increase beneficial use of CCRs as an alternative to disposal.
