For decades, storage ponds were the easiest, most affordable solution to the problem of dealing with coal ash produced by power plants. Today, however, those ponds are the problem. Changes in environmental regulations and legislative priorities changed the rules on storing and remediating coal combustion residual (CCR) pond water, and many are now decommissioned. More than a few power plants and municipalities across the U.S. are struggling to arrive at a solution that is simple, effective, and affordable. Fortunately, Flo Trend has the answer.

We partner with our clients and their engineering teams to address all of the challenges posed by coal ash wastewater ponds. For more than 30 years, Flo Trend has been an international industry leader in the filtration, transportation, and disposal of all manner of wastewater, and our expert team has devised a patented solution to the problem of fly ash. We call it the Sludge Mate®.

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 to pass a paint-filter test for easy dumping. Best of all, Flo Trend’s expert technicians can train your own personnel to operate the Sludge Mate safely and efficiently.
