STAR® (Staged Turbulent Air Reactor) Technology is our patented thermal beneficiation process to transform coal ash from surface impoundments or ponds into a high-quality, sustainable product for the concrete industry. The reliable, consistent quality of STAR beneficiated ash allows it to be used at a higher volume, and in more building projects, than fly ash from other sources. STAR® ash is also recognized as an innovative process aid for the rubber, plastics and silicone industries.

Cleaning Up Coal Ash
We believe that reclaiming coal ash and recycling it for beneficial use in concrete is the best solution for people and the environment. SEFA’s STAR® Technology is a best practice, fiscally-responsible solution to Clean Closure of ponded coal ash. In comparison to conventional coal ash pond closure options like Cap in Place or reburial in a landfill, with potential long-term liability, the environmental benefits of the latest generation STAR® Facility are multi-fold. The benefits begin with the complete transformation of by-product waste material into recycled ash for industrial and municipal applications. The process removes contaminates and provides a reliable raw material that meets or exceeds all specifications for additives in concrete. The process is self-sustaining and exothermic—no fuel is required for continuous treatment. The STAR® Process is a unique example of an innovative U.S.-based technology being used to provide a
