CEC staff have over 20 years of experience assisting our clients in the power industry with CCP management strategies. Our experts produce cost effective solutions while adeptly managing risk.
As coal-fired power plants continue to produce large volumes of CCPs, including bottom ash, fly ash, slag, and FGD by-products, it remains important to develop solutions that balance environmental regulations with responsible actions.
