By-Products

Midwest Environmental Services, Inc. knows that the quality and cost of raw materials is a key to every manufacturer’s successful production of reliable and competitive products. In the past, used, spent, recycled or waste-stream-derived sources of raw materials have been excluded from feed stocks due to quality concerns. However, the current marketplace almost demands the use of these byproducts for economic viability.

Midwest Environmental Services Recycling Byproduct Program is actively managing byproducts from its clients which are reused by other manufacturers. Examples include:

  • Spent Refractory Materials
  • Wastewater Treatment Filer Cake
  • Spent Acid/Caustic Solutions
  • Toners and Inks
  • Glycerin
  • Plastics
  • Paints

These materials can be processed, or in some cases, directly provided to other manufacturers for use as raw materials. Midwest Environmental Services offers a wide array of processing, operations including:

  • Sorting
  • Treating
  • Blending
  • Crushing
  • Shredding
  • Grinding
  • Repackaging

Examples of reuse applications include:

  • Cement Kilns
  • Asphalt Productions
  • Construction Aggregate
  • Fertilizer
  • pH Adjustment
  • Fuel Substitution

Midwest Environmental Services carefully screens each material for its waste characteristics and composition to evaluate reuse. Analytical data and frequency and rate of generation is used to match byproduct streams with potential users. Midwest Environmental Services identifies and exercises quality control over the entire process (generation of wastes, receipt, processing, and shipping of wastes) to ensure that a consistent supply of quality materials is delivered to users.

If you have waste or secondary materials which you believe may be used as a raw material, or if you are seeking waste-stream-derived sources of raw material for your manufacturing operations, please contact your Midwest Environmental Services sales representative.
