Title:Environmental Fact Sheet: Beneficial Uses of Chat Proposed
Document Date:03/01/2006
Description:This fact sheet discusses the proposed criteria for the beneficial use of chat in transportation construction projects and non-transportation, non-residential concrete and cement projects. Chat is a gravel-like waste created from lead and zinc mining activities in the Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri tri-state district between the late 1800s and mid 1900s. EPA believes the proposed uses of chat are protective of human health and the environment. The proposed criteria involve safely encapsulating chat particles in asphalt or cement and concrete.
