Keeping coal pile moisture content under control

Seal Coal Piles for Higher BTU Values, More Efficient Burning, and EPA Compliance

Effective coal pile management mandates keeping coal pile moisture content as low as possible. In fact, sealing coal piles against moisture and oxygen is the only practical way of preventing the deterioration of stored coal. Unsealed, coal piles are likely to have lower BTU values, burn less efficiently, and bear the ravages of freezing and oxidation. They will emit coal dust, an environmental and health concern, and result in actual loss of coal.

Stronger than other polymers on the market and more environmentally sound than other sealing methods, Midwest’s certified and proven coal sealants – Soil-Sement Engineered Formula® and Soil-Sement® – provide a solid seal that prevents coal-pile moisture content from increasing. It also eliminates other coal pile management issues including airflow, hot spots, and erosion so you can maintain the BTU values of stored coal.

The environmental factor
From an environmental perspective, you can rest assured that Midwest will keep you in compliance with the increasingly stringent guidelines set forth by the EPA and other regulatory agencies. Dangerous PM10 and PM2.5 emissions will no longer be a concern. Your work environment will be cleaner and healthier, and coal pile management will help maintain good neighbor status by reducing dust emissions that are both a nuisance and health issue nearby businesses and residences
