AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WAY TO HANDLE AND DISPOSE OF SLURRY & WASTEWATER
SILEX® SLURRY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM is an easy to use, cost effective, environmentally friendly and meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards for proper wastewater disposal.
SILEX® Concrete Polishing System is a wet grinding process which produces slurry. Slurry is a mixture of Portland cement, water, and additives that contain high pH solids which can be considered hazardous waste making it unacceptable for direct disposal in sanitary sewers, landfills and dumpsters. Besides grinding newly placed concrete, keep in mind that any ‘existing’ floors being processed may have been at one time subjected to hazardous materials such as oils, glues, mastic, solvents, &/or fertilizers that produce additional caustic substances.
There are multiple reasons why proper slurry disposal is important, which range from environmental risks to enormous EPA fines, which can start around $10,000 for violating only one of their laws. However, we understand that many Contractors are willing to overlook these risks of fines unless there is slurry disposal solution that is both efficient and easily done.
