Alternative Raw Materials

Systech uses sustainable methods to manage customers’ non-hazardous waste, beneficially reusing its mineral value or using it as an energy resource to make another product, cement.

Systech uses sustainable methods to manage customers’ non-hazardous waste, beneficially reusing its mineral value to make another product—cement. Calcium, alumina, silica, iron and lime are all used as raw materials in the production of powdered portland cement.


Many waste products and filter cakes produced by industrial manufacturing, such as treated waste water, spent foundry sand or boiler ash, contain one or more of these key elements. By repurposing waste products safely and securely as an alternate raw material in the manufacturing of cement, waste is diverted from landfills, reducing the environmental impact.

Systech supports customers’ sustainability initiatives and minimizes potential long-term liability for companies. Dependability is at the forefront of Systech’s work with customers; multiple kilns offer a national network of redundant capacity, even when specific kiln locations may be unavailable.

Customer support with pricing, logistics assistance and other services—from evaluating raw materials through final processing and documentation—is part of Systech’s commitment to address all waste management concerns for customers.
