Levy, a world leader in the aggregate industry, processes over 30 million tons of
slag and natural aggregates per year, including limestone, sand, gravel, rhyolite,
Through safety-conscious and environmentally-conscious mining, Levy maximizes the
value of natural aggregates – integral components in building infrastructure and
the production of concrete, asphalt, and other materials for the construction industry.
Slag aggregates is a cost-effective, environmentally-friendly alternative to natural
aggregates. It is lighter than natural aggregates while providing the same chemical
constituency and strength as its natural counterparts.
“In our paving business, we use both fine and coarse crushed stone and slag to build
permeable bituminous surfaces on drainable aggregate bases.This layering system
works as a natural filter for the water that would, otherwise, remain on the surface.
Natural filtration is a significant advantage of permeable, ‘green’ pavement and
is the simplest way to control storm water run-off and its pollutants.This important
step in the natural process of water purification is bypassed when rainwater falls
on impermeable pavement surfaces.
Consider a parking lot, a shopping center, or a big factory and how these commercialized
areas ineffectively handle run-off.We see them while driving around, and we don’t
think about them, but they have faster, higher pollutant run-off that goes to settling
ponds where algae forms and emits methane.Methane is 23 times more dangerous to
our environment than even CO2.
Our technology balances a commercial need with an effective environmental solution
and reduces infrastructure project costs, eliminating retention ponds and costly
curb and gutter storm drainage systems.”
