Tradinghouse Power Plant demolition and recycling


One of the two boilers at Luminant’s Tradinghouse Power Plant near Waco was imploded this morning; the remaining boiler will come down later this year. Imploding the boilers is the final significant step in the demolition process of the plant’s two inactive/retired natural gas-powered steam units. No definitive date has been set for the implosion of the remaining boiler.

After today’s implosion, our crews immediately began cutting and separating sections into smaller pieces for recycling. As part of Luminant’s waste reduction initiatives, some salvageable equipment is being used at other plants while 95 percent of the remaining materials will be shipped to recycling centers where the metals will be melted down and reused.
