Introduction

CoalPhoenix™ is an Investment DAO that has committed to funding the commercialization and deployment of the CoalMax™ coal ash cleaning system. This cleaning technology has the opportunity to resolve the largest industrial waste problem of our time.

The fastest way to stem the tide of threatening industrial pollution and climate change is through private sector, for profit business such as CoalMax, driven by the CoalPhoenix Investor and the crypto community. The innovation needed to solve the unsolvable must come from the visionary entrepreneur, as all the greatest inventions in history have.

Our Mission

To use the power of the crypto community to help clean up the environment by investing in new technology that, for the first time, can clean up coal ash profitably and reward CoalPhoenix holders with substantial returns.

Vision

To become a leader in environmental restoration by cleaning up coal ash ponds and landfills and turning waste into profits through the sale of upcycled mineral commodities derived from coal ash.

How

Through a special licensing agreement, CoalPhoenix will provide capital to CoalMax and in return will receive 10% of net revenues from the first CoalMax job site.

The Problem: Coal Ash

Coal Ash is a Toxic Global Environmental Problem

Coal Ash is the residual waste byproduct of burned coal. It is incredibly toxic and second in volume only to municipal waste (trash) in the US. It contains arsenic, lead, and mercury that are known to cause cancer, developmental disorders, and reproductive issues.
1.3 Billion
Tons of Coal Ash
is Created Worldwide Annually
Utility companies struggle to find an economic way to safely get rid of coal ash
It is common to keep coal ash in large storage ponds. Many of these ponds leak contaminants.
Coal ash contains chemicals that cause cancer, developmental disorders and reproductive problems. It poisons our water and kills fish and wildlife.

How Coal Ash Ponds Contaminate Our Water & Air

It is common to keep coal ash in large storage pond. These ponds leak contaminants over time creating huge environmental risks, poisoning both water and people. Impact of Coal Ash Ponds spreads into groundwater which then containments neighboring, land, water, wells and more. In addition, coal ash is carried by the wind over long distances, contaminating the food chain and people.

global coal consumption

7.9 Billion Tons of Coal is Consumed Annually Around the Globe
Burning 6 tons of coal produces 1 ton of coal ash Averaging over 1.3 Billion tons of coal ash per year in global accumulation

US Coal ash deposit sites

1.5+ Billion Tons
of Unprocessed Coal Ash Stored in US
500+ 
coal ash ponds and several hundred landfills in US
140 Million Tons 
New coal ash created in 2021 in the US
  • US burned more than 500 million tons of coal in 2021 creating more than 70 million tons of new coal ash that year alone from its 232 coal-power plants.
  • Coal ash ponds, or impoundments, often contain millions of tons of heavy-metal laden waste, spanning hundreds of acres.
  • Many hundreds of polluting coal ash sites around US will be closed in the next few years to comply with federal CCR regulations.
  • Almost all ash ponds are contaminating groundwater with toxins above levels that the U.S. EPA deems safe for drinking water.
US has more than 1.5 billion tons of unprocessed coal ash stored away in ponds and landfills, amount increases daily

The SOLUTION

Using Innovative Technology and Crypto Entrepreneurship to Rectify a Global Environmental Danger

CoalPhoenix™ is funding the first CoalMax™ job site to bring forward new innovative technology to help clean the environment. The CoalMax AMS (Ash Mastery System), the only technology that can cost effectively separate commercial grade raw materials from Coal Ash, making it possible to pay for coal ash cleanup while still profiting through the sale of the raw materials produced.
The CoalMax (AMS) grinds and separates coal ash, removing toxins and turning out high quality Aluminum Oxide, Iron Oxide and Silicon Oxide. All remaining toxins are instantaneously turned inert in the AMS process – no toxicity or residue in post AMS water.

profit in coal ash

CoalMax's total cost per ton of processed Coal Ash is approximately $38 per ton and the output value of readily marketable products is over $500.

environmental impact

The CoalMax AMS process uses very little energy and has zero emissions, all while reversing the world’s largest industrial waste..

The hidden value of coal ash

Coal Ash contains an abundance of valuable raw material including Silicon Dioxide (SiO2), Alumina (AI2O3), Iron Oxide (Fe2O3) and others.

Coal Ash Relative Composition

Circles represent mean concentrations for various fly ash samples, for example, SiO2 = 215,000 mg/kg. Trace elements in order of abundance: Ba, Sr, B, Mn, Zn, V, CR, As, Pb, Ni, Cu, Mo, TI, Be, U, Se, Sb, Cd, Hg.

Too Strong for Conventional Methods

When coal is burned, the chemical bonds in the ash become far more concentrated than in raw coal. The bonds are extremely hardened and make any conventional bond breakup methods cost prohibitive.

For the first time in 100 years, the Coal Ash Dilemma is solved

Until now, it has been impossible to cost effectively breakup the hardened coal ash bonds created when coal is burned. CoalMax uses new unique technology that unlocks the bonds to create Alumina, Silica and Iron Oxide, sorted and ready to sell.
  • Approximately $38 per ton to process
  • Extracts valuable resources to be used
  • Creates clean water
  • Zero CO2 Emissions
  • Uses very little energy

benefits beyond profits

POND & RIVER WATER CLEANUP

An important byproduct of the CoalPhoenix process is clean water. Water will be returned to ponds and/or rivers appropriate location after the complete excavation and removal of coal ash.

ALumina market

2021 Global Production: 141 million tons

Expected CAGR to 2026: 5% (2021-26)

Current Market Price: $370 per ton

(lowest price in last 10 years was $198 in 2016)

Alumina market is driven mainly by the demand for aluminum, which again is driven by megatrends like:

  • Rapid urbanization (building activity)
  • Carbon-neutrality targets which will boost demand from the new energy vehicles
  • Technological breakthroughs where aluminum is envisaged to play a key role

Traditional Process

Alumina is traditionally produced from bauxite, an ore that is mined in tropical and subtropical regions.
2 tons Bauxite
emits
1.6 tons
CO2
requires
1.25 MW

1 ton Alumina
In a year, a full operational, 11-line CoalMax plant extracting Alumina will,
103 MW of power and 135,000 tons CO2 will be saved
compared to using traditional process.

How it works

CoalMax AMS (Ash Mastery System) - Technical Process

1. Pre-Treatment

Coal ash is milled to a small consistent size. Coal Ash is then mixed with water into 50/50 slurry. (2 tons of ash slurry = 1 ton of coal ash)

2. MTU 1 & 2 Processing

The CoalMax™ Main Technical Unit (MTU) breaks free the physical properties of the “glass” bonds in coal ash by using an innovative proprietary mechanism of electro-mechanical acoustic cavitation energy to separate the contents into smaller particles.

The MTU can define how to alter the physical properties through proprietary calibrations with the CoalMax material algorithm and particle reader.

Coal ash is reduced in size by 90% when passes through each MTU. For example a 500 micron element will be reduced to 50 microns and then to 5 microns.

3. Sorting

Alumina, Silica and Iron-Oxide are separated by filters targeting each product.

Clean water is filtered out as well as inert residue.

4. Product Preparation

Silica and Iron-Oxide are packaged and palleted.

5. MTU 3 (SGA Refining)

AI2O3 is sent to MTU 3 to be processed to 99% SGA (smelter grade alumina).

Alumina is dried, packaged and palleted.

CoalMax Employs Best Available Dredging Equipment for High Volume Processing

Coal Ash Slurries require special handling when transporting coal ash from ponds to CoalMax Reservoir. It is critical that the pond liner is protected during dredging to avoid shutdowns and reduce the risk of leakage from ash ponds

Liner-Safe Dredging
CoalMax will use the most advanced and reliable dredging equipment on the market to bring the Coal Ash Slurry to begin processing, ensuring maximum pumping capacity and equipment uptime.

Our Evacuator Dredges are liner-safe so as not to destroy the containment liner while dredging out the coal ash sludge and feeding it into the CoalMax System.
