The nation's number one alternative cement kiln FUEL.



In 1975 Cadence was the first to use carbon-rich waste as fuel in cement kilns.

Today, this fuel called Chem-Fuel® has helped industries large and small manage their hazardous wastes in the most cost-effective and environmentally responsible way possible. Since Chem-Fuel® replaces coal and other fossil fuels, these non-renewable resources can stay in the ground.

Chem-Fuel® is good for the industry and good the environment.

Bulk Liquids (K-Blend)

Roughly half of the liquid waste Cadence receives meets our "kiln-ready" specifications and is sent directly from waste generators to an Ash Grove Cement kiln as part of our Generator Direct program. Waste that does not immediately meet our "kiln-ready" specifications is directed to our national network of TSDF processors also referred to in the industry as “fuel blenders”. Cadence has worked with many of these environmental service providers since the 1970s developing processes and specifications to blend optimal Chem-Fuel® supply for the Ash Grove Cement kilns.


Bulk Solids


Thanks to Cadence's innovative technologies, waste can be used as energy in many forms from solid to liquid and virtually everything in between. This means that more generators from more industries can take advantage of environmental and economic benefits by using Cadence waste-to-energy technologies. Sludges and bulk solids typical of refinery waste become part of the KalcinerDirect® program and are off-loaded and pumped directly to the advanced downdraft calciner on the Ash Grove Cement kiln in Foreman, Arkansas.


NOTHING is left over ... NOTHING is landfilled

100%of your waste is used for energy recovery.
