Ted. J. Reese

Founder and Chairman of the Board

In 1975, Ted J. Reese founded Cadence Chemical Resources built on an idea and need to more effectively use industrial hazardous wastes as fuels in industrial furnaces. The technology started with the steel industry then transitioned over to cement kilns. After supplying many cement kilns in the Midwest regions of the United States, Cadence formed an exclusive relationship with Ash Grove Cement in 1986. The result has conserved millions of tons of coal and other nonrenewable fossil fuels in the Cement Industry. In addition, American manufacturers have the most environmentally viable option in managing their wastes.

Ted's idea became the backbone of Cadence which now operates as Cadence Environmental Energy. Ted J. continues to serve as Chairman of the Board and remains engaged in the company operations. His background as a chemical engineer helped develop the company and its innovative technologies culminating with over 20 worldwide patents.
