Cement Modified Soil for Pavement Applications

For many years, the ability to stabilize soil for pavement base material relied heavily on the use of Fly Ash, a bi-product of energy generation from coal-fired power stations. But more recently, new regulations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has impacted the availability, and expense, of Fly Ash, making it costly for DOTs and public entities to use for the base layer under pavement. With natural gas being a cheaper and more environmentally-friendly alternative to coal, Fly Ash supplies may continue to decrease while prices increase.  Cement Modified Soil (CMS) provides a better, cost-effective alternative.
