GRR-Harleyville processes both solid and liquid hazardous and non-hazardous materials into waste-derived fuel. The fuel is then burned by Giant Cement on the adjacent property in the production of cement. Giant is also able to direct-feed certain liquid waste fuels from a tanker to the kiln.

GRR-Harleyville has the distinction of being the most successful cement kiln in recycling alternate fuels since the program started under BIF in 1992. It is one of only two cement plants in the US that is permitted to store and utilize bulk solid hazardous waste fuels. In 2005, the facility completed a two-year, $130 million expansion which furthered its ability to efficiently and effectively handle these materials.

Waste Acceptance Guidelines

I. Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Solid Fuel

Examples: Filter Cakes, Paint Solids, Carbon, Resins, PPE, Rags, Debris, Consumer Products

Specifications:

Heat Content – > 5,000 BTU/lb. (2,000-5,000 BTU may be accepted on a case-by-case basis)

Chlorides – ≤ 5% (> 5% may be accepted on a case-by-case basis)

PCBs – < 40 ppm

Metals – See Metals Guidelines

<10% by volume gravel, rocks, stones, etc.

Examples of materials that are not suitable for the Solid Fuel Program include medical wastes, free liquids, wet sludges, construction debris (concrete, steel, etc.) lab packs, aerosol cans, nitrocellulose, and reactive, explosive, and radioactive materials, as well as other materials that may pose a processing problem.

II. Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Liquid Fuel

Examples: Solvents, Waste Oil, Coolants, Alcohols, Off-Spec Fuels

Specifications:

Heat Content – > 5,000 BTU/lb. (2,000-5,000 BTU may be accepted on a case-by-case basis)

Chlorides – ≤ 3% (> 3% may be accepted on a case-by-case basis)

PCBs – < 40 ppm

Metals – See Metals Guidelines

III. Non-Hazardous Materials that Can Replace Raw Materials Used in Cement Production

Examples: Fly Ash, Sand, Iron Oxide, High Calcium-Type Materials

Specifications:

Size – < 20" x 20" x 20"

Sulfur – < 1%

Free of debris such as wood, concrete, metal, tires, etc.

Metals Guidelines

The guidelines below apply to all waste fuel materials. Materials that exceed these criteria may be accepted on a case-by-case basis and with prior notification if they can be blended to meet the guidelines, except as noted.

Arsenic (As)

Beryllium (Be)

Cadmium (Cd)

Chromium (Cr)

Lead (Pb)

Mercury (Hg)

Nickel (Ni)

Zinc (Zn)

*Until an upper limit for mercury is established, GRR asks that all waste shipments contain < 10 ppm mercury. This is because the total mercury that GRR receives in waste shipments varies daily which can affect the acceptance of a load.
