Our Power Facilities Run on Reclamation

We own two circulating fluidized bed mining waste reclamation and power generation facilities purpose-built to help solve Pennsylvania’s mining waste problem. Our power generation facilities are able to switch power flow from Bitcoin miners to the PJM grid, acting as a reliable battery for grid stability. 

We Operate with Best Available Technology for Air Pollution Control:

Mining waste piles have been catching fire for decades, emitting toxins without any emissions control. In the generation process, the plants utilize advanced controls to reduce emissions to levels within the state and federal requirement.

A Jan. 2023 study from the Energy Research Center at Lehigh University carried out a comparative assessment on the impact on greenhouse gas emissions from unabated mining waste pile fires vs. the Reclamation-To-Energy process, finding that the Reclamation-To-Energy industry produces a net reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. 

A March 2023 study from TRC Environmental Inc. documented the Reclamation-To-Energy industry’s significant contribution to the net reduction of global CO2e by permanently remediating the “forever” emissions from mining waste piles.
