- About Us
- Our Services
FlyAshDirect creates by-product utilization opportunities for the power generation industry by developing markets for fly ash resources. Our efforts and services transform vast industrial resources into revenue generating assets. Since our beginning in 1989, we have developed markets throughout the Midwest and beneficially marketed millions of tons of coal combustion by-products.
- Concrete Products
One of the leading uses for fly ash is in Concrete Products applications. Fly ash use in concrete improves the workability of plastic concrete, and the strength and durability of hardened concrete. Fly ash is also a cost effective ingredient in concrete because it contributes to the total cementitious component in the mix and therefore allows the producer to reduce the amount of cement in a typical mix design ...
- Flowable Fill
Flowable fill is an engineered, low strength fill material containing water, Class F fly ash, sand and portland cement. It is self-leveling, self-compacting and non-settling and has characteristics that compete favorably with traditional materials such as compacted soil, soil-cement and concrete ...
- Soil Amendment
Soil Amendment is the chemical and/or mechanical modification of soil properties to improve the engineering performance of soils. The properties that are most often modified are strength, plasticity, density, and water content. Improvements to soil properties expedite construction activities which contribute to savings in time and money. Typically, fly ash is used in conjunction with other materials such as lime, cement, or lime kiln dust to achieve the desired effect ...
- Mine Reclamation
Coal mining began in the United States in the 1800's and until 1977 there were no federal laws that regulated mining operations. Once mining ceased at a location that had been fully tapped, it was most often abandoned and operations were moved to a new site. In 1977, there were an estimated 1.1 million acres of abandoned coal mine sites in the United States ...
- Ash Treatment
Fly ash production in the United States exceeds 70 million tons each year and only 40% is beneficially utilized, leaving over 40 million tons of land filled material. The most significant factor that negatively affects fly ash utilization is unburned carbon. Currently, ASTM limits carbon levels to 6% and most state DOT departments require a maximum of 3% for applications involving the production of concrete. Concrete production is the highest value market for specification grade fly ash ...
FlyAshDirect creates by-product utilization opportunities for the power generation industry, specifically involving coal combustion materials known as CCP’s. CCP’s include fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag and flue gas desulphurization materials. In 2003, in excess of 120 million tons of CCP’s were produced in the United States by over 600 coal fired power plants. Only 35% of CCP’s are beneficially utilized leaving approximately 78 million tons which require traditional solid waste disposal ...

- AgroSoil™ Synthetic Gypsum
Naturally occurring gypsum has been applied to agricultural soils in the United States for more than 250 years. AgroSoil™ is FGD gypsum, sometimes referred to as synthetic gypsum. It is rich in calcium and sulfur and can improve overall plant growth by enriching both the physical and chemical properties of soils.
- The Ash Industry
The United States ash industry is comprised of electric utilities, marketers and university research institutions that collectively encourage and promote the use of coal combustion products (CCP’s) as beneficial construction materials. CCP’s include fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag and flue gas desulfurization materials. These materials are produced as a result of burning coal at electric generating stations.
