Minimizing Waste Streams
The Mini Mill Division has extended its commitment of aligning the physical and
chemical properties of slag to the most financially attractive and sustainable market
applications to include many of our customers' waste streams.
As environmental regulations for storing excess stockpiles of slag co-products and
various steel mill waste streams are becoming increasingly more stringent, often
the only alternative for customers is to land fill these products. Levy, through
its extensive research experience in Portland Cement and Concrete, determined that
these products had potential commercial value for the Portland Cement industry.
Consequently, in 2004, Levy acquired the CemStar patented technology to utilize
BF & SF Slag in Portland Cement kilns. Since that time, we have expanded these efforts
to include Ladle Metallurgy Furnace (LMF) Slag under the CemStar technology, as
we believe the commercial utilization of LMF Slag will be one of the more significant
areas of financial value for customers.
Levy supplies Calumite LLC, an independent company, with slag for their specialized
products. This company takes various slags and processes them into a raw material
feed stock for the glass manufacturing industry. The company has been operating
since 2005 and includes providing materials to both the float glass and bottle manufacturing
