Sand Processing at RRC is accomplished by rotary attrition, heat, dust removal and manual screening. After processing, the molding and core sands are used for many different Michigan DEQ approved uses. A varity of products are produced from recycled foundry sand including asphalt, concrete, soils blends, liner cover, remediation media and fill material. Sand is RRC's main reason for existence, finding ways to responsibly reuse molding sands and saving virgin sand sources for the future are our goals.
