Looking for a simple, cost-effective fly ash remediation solution? You’re not alone. The EPA mandated that all U.S. power plants have a solution in place by the end of 2016 for the safe removal and permanent storage of their fly ash and bottom ash. Because of the immediacy of the mandate, the costs associated with permanent fly ash removal have risen to actually exceed the cost of the solid fuel being purchased to produce energy. Fortunately, Flo Trend has an easy, customizable answer to the problem.

The Sludge Mate™ is an industry-leading container filter that can be built to suit virtually any project. It’s rugged, portable, and lasts for decades with virtually no maintenance or repairs. The removable filter media inside the container can dewater hundreds of thousands of gallons of sludge, leaving behind only solid waste ready for easy dumping at an approved site. Best of all, Flo Trend’s expert technicians can train your own personnel to operate the Sludge Mate safely and efficiently. It’s as simple as pouring water into a container.

The Sludge Mate™ makes it easy to remove fly ash from the utility settling pond, dewater it, and transport and deposit the solid waste that remains at certified landfills. This simple method does not require specialized expertise or personnel. Anyone can operate the Sludge Mate™, and because it has no moving parts, it lasts for decades with virtually zero maintenance.
