EnCAP-IT®, will be delivering a presentation at the 2017 World of Coal Ash Conference.

John P. Swenson, Custis Coleman, Jeffrey T. Crate P. G. (Waste Resource Services), Albert J Silkroski and Tim Fogerty (Hilltop Enterprises) will be attending the World of Coal Ash (WOCA) Conference again this year. This biennial conference is organized by the American Coal Ash Association and the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research and focuses on global coal combustion and gasification products. The conference is being held on May 8-11, 2017 in Lexington, Kentucky (Lexington Convention Center & Hyatt Hotel).

The presentation is entitled:

Macroencapsulation: Obtaining On-Site Clean Closure by using Beneficial Reuse of Non-Traditional Materials

For information or to schedule a meeting during the conference, please contact John Swenson.

EnCAP-IT® publishes presentation on Macroencapsulation: The Optimal On-Site Clean Closure

TRUE:    On-Site Clean Closure is obtainable.

FALSE:   Clean Closure can only be obtained by using off-site disposal methods.

EnCAP-IT has developed a strategy to obtain On-Site Clean Closure using the existing basin footprint(s).

EnCAP-IT has continued to innovate its solutions ….. These innovative solutions can benefit any Basin Closure Strategy.

Part 5 of 5: Coal Ash Storage – safeBERM® Hydrostatic Barrier System

EnCAP-IT's safeBERM® Hydrostatic Barrier System - Front PageUsing patented macroencapsulation technologies allows generators to continue to beneficially reuse CCRs in structural berms, fills and hydrostatic barriers. safeBERM® solutions have an internal geomembrane envelope that completely encapsulates the fill material. These methods can be utilized in every facet of the strategic CCR management solution—closing ash ponds in place, converting to dry storage, strengthening existing sloped structures, providing proactive liquid management or relocating CCRs for beneficial use.

safeBERM® technologies use a unique drainage system, with lined hydrostatic barriers around the boundaries of CCR storage and storage units.

EnCAP-IT’s safeBERM® Hydrostatic Barrier approach is a viable alternative solution where CCR’s can be safely utilized to create hydrostatic barriers around the footprint perimeter. This method is half the cost and twice the efficiency compared to traditional methods. (i.e., Slurry Wall, Slurry Trench, or Slurry Cutoff Wall …)

Part 4 of 5: Coal Ash Storage – safeBERM® Retro-Fit System

Using patented macroencapsulation technologies allows generators to continue to beneficially reuse CCRs in structural berms and fills. safeBERM® solutions have an internal geomembrane envelope that completely encapsulates the fill material. These methods can be utilized in every facet of the strategic CCR management solution—closing ash ponds in place, converting to dry storage, strengthening existing sloped structures, or relocating CCRs for beneficial use.

safeBERM® technologies use a unique drainage system, with lined hydrostatic barriers around the boundaries of CCR storage and storage units.

EnCAP-IT’s safeBERM® Retro-Fit approach is a viable alternative solution where CCR’s can be stored safely under half the cost and timeframe as compared to off-site disposal, moving the coal ash storage away from the waterways.
