Durability study of concrete using foundry waste sand

5. Concrete containing weathered sand and concrete containing burnt black sand has resulted in lower strength at 28 days of curing i.e., 27.76N/mm2 and 28.05 N/mm2 respectively compared to control mix of strength 42.292N/mm2, this is due to higher water absorption of foundry waste sand.

Beneficial Uses of Spent Foundry Sands | US EPA

The metal casting industry generates spent foundry sands. Foundries purchase new, sand to make casting molds, and the sand is reused numerous times within the foundry. This reuse eventually renders the sand unsuitable for use in casting molds, and a portion of the sand is continuously removed and replaced with sand.
