1 Building for theBy Recycling Industrial Materials Industrial Materials Recycling Kimberly Cochran, PhD US EPA Office of Solid Waste AGC Building Division Meeting January 26, 2008 Miami, Florida

2 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Industrial Materials Recycling Team Promotes the reduction, reuse, and recycling of industrial materials –Construction and demolition (C&D) materials –Coal combustion products (CCPs) –Foundry sands –Tires –Slags –Pulp and paper residuals

3 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Why reuse/recycle these materials? They –Can substitute virgin materials AND save energy, time, and money –Perform as well or better than virgin materials Capture valuable materials that would otherwise be lost. Recycling/reusing can mean points for green building certification.

4 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials C&D Materials Include …

5 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Components of C&D Waste Wood –Engineered Wood Oriented Strand Board (OSW) Plywood Blackboard –Dimensional Lumber –Treated Wood

6 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Markets: Boiler Fuel Mulch Engineered boards Wood

7 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Portland Cement Concrete Markets: –Road Base –Aggregate

8 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Heavily Recycled in New Hot Mix Asphalt Asphalt Concrete

9 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Gypsum Drywall Markets: –New Drywall –Portland Cement Production –Agriculture –Construction Material Components of C&D Materials

10 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Roofing Materials –Asphalt Roofing Shingles –Asphalt Roofing Felt Recycled into new hot mix asphalt. Components of C&D Materials

11 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Metals –Ferrous –Nonferrous Aluminum Copper Components of C&D Materials

19 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials

20 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Consigli’s Waste Management Four Tier System Tier I: Direct Reuse and Recycling Tier II: Source Separated Materials Tier III: Mixed C&D to Offsite Separation Tier IV: Mixed C&D to Landfills

21 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials

22 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials State Programs & Regulations Massachusetts ban on disposal before processing California requires 50% diversion from landfills Various states have grants and education programs

23 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Local Ordinances Disposal bans –Ban of specific materials from being disposed Waste plan requirement –Require all contractors to submit plans on how they will reduce disposal when applying for a permit Deposit system –Fee required when applying for a permit that is returned when recycling is proven Salvage period requirements

24 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Other Factors Influencing Recycling Increases in fuel prices Green building initiatives Efforts to reduce GHG emissions General difficulty to site landfills

25 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Not Just C&D Materials … Remember: It is important to reuse/recycle the waste your company generates, but It is also important to use recyclable materials from other industries in construction design.

26 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Other Industrial Materials Coal fly ash Iron/steel slag Foundry sand Fill Structural material Masonry material Many more…

27 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Industrial Materials Recycling Team Measure – “What gets tracked gets managed” Explore barriers and how to overcome them Increase awareness Recognize success

28 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Measurement: C&D Materials Will be measuring annually -- need a viable, economically feasible source of data Currently looking at data states collect and publish Amount Generated (million tons) Recycling Rate Buildings16040% Road Surfaces17088% Other sources?? Total?? Preliminary 2003 draft numbers

29 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Exploring Barriers, Increasing Awareness Construction Initiative –Encouraging use of industrial materials in building or highway construction projects Green Buildings, Highways, and Sustainable Sites –Helping develop criteria –Promoting industrial materials recycling in green structures/sites –Promoting coordination between transportation and environmental agencies

41 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials EPA’s Partnership with AGC Measurement tool for contractors How much did my company reused/recycled? How much did my company SAVE?

42 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials EPA’s Partnership with AGC Recognition –Case Studies –Others?

43 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Things to Think About What obstacles have you encountered? What role does each participant play in overcoming the obstacles to industrial materials recycling? –Contractors –Manufacturers –States –EPA

44 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Things to Think About What tools and resources do contractors need to –Reuse/recycle materials –Use recycled materials

45 Building for the By Recycling Industrial Materials Case Studies Recycling/reusing C&D materials Using industrial materials Need: –Amount and types of materials that were reused/recycled –Size of project –Amount of money saved (if available) –Obstacles encountered and how they were overcome
