Separation Technologies LLC expands to Asia
ROANOKE, Va. -- January 28, 2013
Officials at Separation Technologies LLC (ST) announced that they have
finalized an agreement for the purchase and installation of a fly ash
beneficiation unit at the Yeongheung Power Station by Korea South-East Power
Co., Ltd. (KOSEP), a subsidiary of Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO).
KEPCO is the largest electric utility in Korea, responsible for 93% of the
country’s electricity generation. The separation and processing unit will be
used to beneficiate fly ash produced by Units 5 and 6 of the Yeongheung Power
Station, which are currently under construction and are scheduled for
completion by December 2014.
ST’s world-leading green technology converts fly ash, an industrial waste
produced from the burning of coal, into two useful products:
*a standard building material (ProAsh®), used in the construction sector
*a consistent supply of fuel (EcoTherm™), useful for the coal burning
The ST fly ash beneficiation process results in a profitable activity that
contributes to environmental protection by,
*reducing the need for land filling
*reducing the quarrying of raw materials
*reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
The project has been warmly welcomed by the local authorities and community in
Korea for its contribution to sustainable development. “Expanding into Asia is
an important milestone for ST and, we believe, for Korea’s Utility sector and
concrete industry,” said Randy Dunlap, ST President. “We welcome the
opportunity to work with KOSEP and know this is just the beginning of an
excellent long-term relationship.”
This is the first ST unit to be installed in Asia; there are already 19 fly
ash ST separation units in operation in the US, Canada, and Europe. ST has
also installed separators for the beneficiation of industrial minerals in
North America and Europe.
Separation Technologies LLC is a developer and supplier of specialized
processing equipment for beneficiation of fine particle minerals, based in
Roanoke, VA, USA. ST is part of the TITAN AMERICA family of Businesses, owned
by Titan Cement Company S.A., an independent cement and building materials
producer with 110 years of industry experience. In 2011, the Group sold 15.3
m. tonnes of cement and cementitious materials, 3.7 m. m3 of ready mixed
concrete, 10.9 m. tonnes of aggregates and various other building materials,
