Repurposing Waste as Raw Materials


We want your waste to make cement

To make Portland cement, huge amounts of lime, calcium, silica, iron, alumina are used as raw materials. These key ingredients are also found in a wide variety of industrial wastes from boiler ash to spent filter cakes - from treated waste water to foundry sand. Typically, these materials are sent to landfills.


If you generate these types of wastes, Cadence can help you reach your sustainability goals by repurposing these wastes as raw materials in an Ash Grove cement kiln. Cement kilns require huge amounts of these raw materials so, however much you generate Ash Grove can reuse your waste to make cement. When wastes are safely incorporated in cement they are gone for good and so is your long-term liability.
