Product development for low input soil/sand: Utilization of foundry waste slag and sand in building materials

Development Alternatives Group, under Core Support Programme has developed a novel technology to use foundry slag in paver block manufacturing by replacing 100 percent of the natural aggregates by crushed slag. This meets the twin demands of resource efficiency and waste utilization. This crushed foundry slag is an ideal candidate for the replacement of natural aggregates due to its intrinsic properties close to natural aggregate



Developed By: Development Alternatives - Technology and Action for Rural Advancement

10 sensitizing workshops were organized in different states of the country. Business models for foundry slag based paver block technology was developed for the entrepreneurs. Total 15 commercial enterprises were setup which are operating in a profitable manner. Samalkha cluster was declared as 100% waste free cluster.
