   Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland announced Wednesday , April 13 , 2022 , a letter of intent among WastAway , LLC and Argos USA LLC and the City . The letter is a step toward utilizing in Argo USA’s Calera , Alabama cement plant sustainable engineered fuel manufactured by WastAway and derived from the City’s solid waste . This letter of intent results from the economic viability study of WastAway’s refuse - derived fuel—SE3—that the City commissioned in July 2021 . If formalized ,
    
   the City project would deliver Argos a fixed minimum quantity of 104 tons of SE3 fuel per day over a 10 - year period . The overwhelming majority of this fuel would be generated from solid waste generated within Murfreesboro .  
    
   “This is the first step for Murfreesboro to have solid waste independence
    
   from Middle Point landfill or any other landfill for that matter . WastAway’s process provides a beneficial fuel that hits all of the sustainability , economical , and environmental goals that benefit our community and enhance the quality of life for citizens in Murfreesboro , ” announced
   Mayor Shane McFarland
    . “The Council and City staff have led the effort to find solutions to the issues involved with the landfill . This announcement is an important part of that effort to find a long - term , sustainable solution that is right for our community . I hope our work with WastAway can set the standard for a regional solution that others can adopt . We know our partners in Smyrna , Lavergne and Rutherford County can work together for a true sustainable solution . We have the right team working together and look forward to future progress . ”
    
   WastAway notified Assistant City Manager and Water Resources Director Darren Gore this week that a signed - executable Letter of Intent from Argos , indicating a willingness to enter into long - term fuel purchase agreements with the City of Murfreesboro as supplier for SE3 at the Calera , Alabama plant .  
    
   The fuel purchase letter of intent is subject to due diligence , including testing of the suitability of SE3 as a potential source of alternative fuel for Argos’s manufacturing operation .  
    
   WastAway presented a Waste - to - Fuel Report update before the City Council Workshop meeting March 9 , 2022 , on the economic viability of a waste - to - fuel or waste - to - energy project for the City’s municipal solid waste .  The SE3 manufactured biomass fuel would be used in boilers for cement kilns and power generation facilities as a coal or wood equivalent .  
    
   WastAway , LLC is located in Morrison , TN . Argos USA operates cement and ready - mix concrete manufacturing facilities throughout the Southeastern United States .
