Re: Foundry Wastewater slude
You should contact Elizabeth Olenbush, Director of the
Foundry Industry Recycling Starts Today (FIRST)
Project. FIRST is actively involved in precisely the
types of matters to which you refer. I know that Kurtz
Bros., Incl [Independence, Ohio; (216)986-7000] is doing
things with foundry waste materials, and Hamilton
County, Ohio is using flowable fill in some of their
programs (Contact: William Brayshaw, Chief Engineer,
Hamilton County; [(513)946-8902]). In Michigan, you
might check with Dave Walborn, Resource Recovery Corp.
of West Michigan [(616)837-1885]. They are working with
these approaches in Michigan.
You may already know about these connections, but I
thought I should pass them on. I would urge you to
contact Elizabeth Olenbush (413)229-2466. Ohio (through
the Ohio Cast Metals Association; Russ Murray, Exec.
Dir. [614)876-5100]is a partner in FIRST and Elizabeth
has done a lot of work with Ohio in these programs.
