2019 Advanced Foundry Waste and Byproducts Seminar

AFS Headquarters
February 19-20, 2019

Overview

Management of foundry process solid wastes and industrial byproducts can be one of the most significant environmental costs facing metalcasters today. In addition to the high cost of management, metalcasters face significant regulatory and environmental liability if these materials are improperly characterized and/or mismanaged. Seminar attendees will learn how to properly identify and characterize their foundry process solid wastes (hazardous and nonhazardous) and byproducts. They will also learn how these materials are regulated and options for proper management of both wastes and byproducts. In addition to classroom instruction, the seminar includes hands-on class exercises where participants can interact with  seminar attendees and instructors to work through real-world foundry waste and byproduct management issues.
