Since 1976, Keystone has blended high-BTU liquid hazardous waste into fuel which is used as a supplement to coal in its cement manufacturing process. Keystone was the first cement company in the United States to have an energy recovery program of this type. After completing a three-year, $230-million modernization project in 2009, Keystone began operating one of the most modern cement manufacturing facilities in the United States. The new facility has enabled Keystone to better serve the growing needs of its customers while at the same time reducing plant emissions.

Waste Approval Procedures

Each new bulk liquid waste stream must be approved by the Keystone Approvals Department and by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) prior to shipment. For assistance, call Keystone's Resource Recovery Department at (610) 837-1881.
