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.

[This is the fourth of a five-part series developed by EnCAP-IT®.]
