Foundry Sand Facts for Civil EngineersMay 2004Foundry Industry Recycling Starts Today (FIRST)TDC Partners Ltd.417 S. St. Asaph St. Alexandria, VA 22314FirstPO Box 333Fall River, MA 01244Federal Highway AdministrationEnvironmental Protection Agency Washington, DCSeptember 01 - September 03Metal foundries use large amounts of sand as part of the metal casting process. Foundries successfullyrecycle and reuse the sand many times in a foundry. When the sand can no longer be reused in thefoundry, it is removed from the foundry and is termed “foundry sand.” Foundry sand production is nearly6 to 10 million tons annually. Like many waste products, foundry sand has beneficial applications toother industries.The purpose of this document is to provide technical information about the potential civil engineeringapplications of foundry sand. This will provide a means of advancing the uses of foundry sand that aretechnically sound, commercially competitive and environmentally safe.Foundry Sand, Materials, Highway Construction, Asphalt, Concrete, Flowable fills, EmbankmentNo restrictions.
