RE: Ceramic Tiles

Around 1989 I installed a 350 HP dry air compressor for a company located in
central PA. The company may have been a General Electric company. The air
was to support the manufacture of ceramic tile. What impressed me the most
is that a main ingredient for the ceramic tile was scrapped incandescent
light bulbs. The G.E plant produced light bulbs and the scrap rate was very
high, so they installed equipment to make use of the scrap. I don't recall
any names, but the plant was located in central PA, about in the middle of
nowhere. I believe the major machinery for the manufacturing of the tile
came from Italy. The compressor was from Broomwade, England. Hope some of
this helps.

Subject: Ceramic Tiles

Has anyone worked with a company involved in the manufacture of ceramic 
tiles or other high temperature ceramics products?  I am looking for some 
benchmarking opportunities for a Romanian company that wants to come to 
North America to look at pollution prevention techniques and 
technologies.  It is so refreshing to see that Europeans are just as 
interested in what we are doing as our fascination about what they are 
doing.  This firm does not insist that we call this "cleaner 
production."  Another refreshing concept!  Any leads or information would 
be appreciated.

The Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable is this 
week.  Hope to see many of you in Madison, Wisconsin!!
