Boral Resources Acquires Marketing Rights for Two Major Mexico Fly Ash Sources
ATLANTA – Boral Resources has acquired marketing rights for fly ash produced at two large coal-fueled power plants in Mexico. The power plants are capable of producing more than 1 million tons annually of concrete quality Class F fly ash that will be available for distribution through Boral’s extensive western United States network.
The new ash sources include:
- Carbon II – in Nava, Coahuila, located approximately 25 miles from the Texas border and accessible by truck and rail shipments.
- Petacalco – in Petacalco, Guerrero, located on Mexico’s Pacific Coast and accessible by rail and barge shipments.
“The Carbon and Petacalco ash sources comprise another powerful tool in our on-going effort to expand the volume and improve the supply reliability of high quality fly ash for U.S. concrete markets,” said Jimmy Lambert, Vice President, Boral Resources West Region. “This action is a key component in a strategy that includes materials blending, harvesting previously stored ash, and utilizing a range of ash beneficiation technologies to continue improving on what is already the largest and most robust fly ash supply network in the nation.”
