EPA's WASTE HIERARCHY
Cadence and Ash Grove Cement developed the waste derived fuel specifications for Chem-Fuel®. Both the Foreman, Arkansas and Chanute, Kansas permitted facilities receive bulk shipments of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes in liquid, sludge, or solid form. This means that more generators from a variety of industries can take advantage of Chem-Fuel's® environmental and economic benefits.
1. LOW COST
Ash Grove and Cadence have more than 35 years of experience managing waste fuels. Our experience and efficiency saves you time and money.
2. CONSERVE RESOURCES
Every ton of industrial waste used in cement kilns conserves our nation’s non-renewable energy sources like coal, petcoke, and natural gas. Keeping these fossil fuels in the ground and keeping industrial wastes out the ground is good for our environment.
3. PRODUCTIVE USE
We believe waste should not be wasted. Cement kiln energy recovery uses every component in waste to produce the world's most important building product...cement.
4. GONE FOR GOOD
Cement kiln energy recovery uses waste to produce cement. High internal temperatures mean there is nothing left over to landfill. Your waste and liabilities are GONE FOR GOOD!
NON-ENERGY BEARING WASTE DISPOSAL OPTIONS
Not all wastes have carbon and are energy bearing wastes. In fact a high majority of industrial wastes have little to no energy value and cannot be used as fuels in cement kilns. Our primary focus is finding energy bearing waste for cement kilns; however, we also have relationships to help our customers with the non-energy bearing waste as well. Whatever hazardous waste your facility generates, Cadence can offer you a cost-effective and environmentally responsible solution.
In 1975, Cadence was the first to use carbon-rich waste as fuel in cement kilns. Today, this fuel, Chem-Fuel®, has helped industries both large and small manage their hazardous wastes and meet their sustainability goals.
