Uses of Waste Foundry Sands in Ci vii Engineering

nant metal cast is gray iron. After a number of uses, the molding sands lose the desired qualities and are discarded. The foundry may operate a monofill for these wastes or may transport them to a municipal solid waste landfill. In either case, the disposal costs are significant, and the foundries are anxious to reduce them. The grain size distribution of WFS is uniform, with most sizes within a narrow range
