AgroSoil® is a product of FlyAshDirect, a Waste Management company. AgroSoil® is our branded variety of FGD gypsum, a synthetic by-product of fluidized gas desulfurization (FGD) at coal-fired power plants.
Current AgroSoil® Distribution Locations
Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, we distribute AgroSoil® from three Midwestern power plants:
From these locations, we distribute AgroSoil® to agricultural customers throughout the Midwest.
How AgroSoil® Is Made
At coal-fired power plants, flue gases — including SO2 — are exposed to a slurry of hydrated lime. This turns the SO2 oxidation into calcium sulfite. The calcium sulfite is then oxidized to form gypsum. During the process, the by-product is washed with water to remove boron (B), mercury (Hg) and other undesirable chemical contaminants. Finally, centrifuges and vacuum filtration are used to remove excess water.
