We get excited about concrete domes. Their inherent strength, low maintenance, energy efficiency, and customizability make them an excellent option for a spacious and secure home. And for the same reasons, concrete dome storage facilities make the perfect commercial or agricultural solution, too.
Dome Technology recently published a great article about the commercial application of concrete domes. In this case, a new twin dome structure in Ogden, Utah storing fly ash. If you aren’t familiar with fly ash, it is a byproduct of burning coal in electric power plants that can be used to improve concrete.
Each dome in the Ogden facility measures 108 feet in diameter and is 120 feet tall, with a fly-ash capacity of 25,000 short tons. Fly ash will be conveyed from the domes to trucks for delivery.
