Geocycle in Canada operates an ash processing facility

Holcim Ecoash

Geocycle and Lafarge Canada, which are part of Holcim North America, commissioned a new state-of-the-art ash processing facility in Alberta – the first of its kind within Holcim’s global operations. The facility will use advanced beneficiation technology to transform landfilled fly ash from power plants to Class F fly ash, which is marketed as ECOAsh. Due to phasing out cf-power in North America the replacement of newly generated fly ash by processing and reusing landfilled ash is already a trend since several years, with many suppliers in the market. Anyhow, ECOAsh signifies Holcim solutions to reduce carbon emissions and to support the demand for quality fly ash in high-performance (green) cement and concrete.
