Headwaters Incorporated has reported sales of a record 69,670 tons of fly ash from Great River Energy's Coal Creek Station in Underwood, N.D. in August 2005. A major portion of that fly ash replaces a portion of Portland cement in concrete production. Fly ash advocates note that the ash provides a savings of $375,000 tons in landfill disposal costs for every 100,000 tons of ash used in making concrete products, plus a reduction of 1.0 to 1.1 tons of greenhouse gases for each ton of fly ash used as a cement replacement.
