CARY, N.C. – (Business Wire) The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has approved PMI Ash Technologies (PMI) Application for Certification of GHG Credits. MassDEP also approved PMIs Application for Verification of GHG Credits. These approvals create 137,884 verified GHG (CO2) Credits for emission reductions that occurred in 2007 and 2008 from fly ash manufactured at the Chesapeake Energy Center (CEC) CBO facility.

The CEC CBO facility beneficially processes fly ash that would otherwise be landfilled. The beneficiated fly ash is used as a partial replacement of Portland cement in concrete. The CBO facility also increases the efficiency of the power plant due to heat recovered through the beneficiation process. This recovered heat is returned to the power plant, reducing the amount of coal burned. The CEC CBO is the fourth commercial CBO facility and has been in operation since November 2006.
