At Great River Energy we understand our operations affect our environment. We take seriously the responsibility to protect communities and the natural resources in areas where we operate. This is one reason why, for over 15 years, we have found beneficial ways to use ash and other byproducts from our power plants. For example, Great River Energy markets much of the fly ash we create at our power plants. This fine ash has numerous industrial applications, such as replacing Portland cement in concrete production. Each year, Great River Energy sells or donates approximately 400,000 tons of fly ash from its Coal Creek Station and Stanton Station power plants in North Dakota.
Great River Energy facilities are in compliance with the rules that regulate coal ash from power plants. GRE operates with transparency and integrity, facing every business challenge with creativity, innovation and an eye on continuous improvement. Through our website you can access information about the management of our coal combustion residuals (coal ash). We welcome you to take a look.
