Foundry Wastewater slude



I was contacted by a foundry operation that uses a wet dust collection system (water scrubber).  The sludge is stored in a lagoon and de-watered.  The sludge consists of:

4-10% sand/based on grain size
rest is silt & clay
30-40% moisture
SPLP test yield acid content as weak as rain water
operation products 190,000 tons of sludge each year.

Is there a company and/or process that can use this product (preferably in IN, OH or MI).  Perhaps as flowable fill?  Concrete additive?

Any ideas, comments or suggestions


Thank you in advance,
