Philippines: Lafarge Republic has signed a deal with the provincial government of Bataan and GNPower Mariveles Coal Plant to buy coal ash from the latter company's 600MW power plant.
Lafarge Republic, formerly Republic Cement, said the deal will start once the power plant begins producing coal ash. It will expire in November 2019. The company didn't provide financial details of the deal.
In a transaction announced in June 2012, Cemex Philippines said it will buy for around US$1 each ton of coal ash to be produced by the 200MW power plant of Korea Electric Power in the central province of Cebu.
