This waste, which is comprised of air pollution control () dust and sludge, was one of many mineral processing wastes that was made conditionally exempt from RCRA Subtitle C ...
Use of Lightweight Aggregates in Flexible Pavements What is Lightweight Aggregate Lightweight aggregates are produced by pro cessing certain shales, clays, or slates, to small size particles and firing these particles in rotary kilns at a temperature of some 2000° F. Gases given off during the process cause bloating which
