Is there a business case for crushed sand?
The demand for economical and efficient ways to produce crushed sand is growing as natural sand deposits located near growth centers are depleted and environmental regulations are tightened. At the same time, many aggregates producers are studying the possibility to produce crushed sand and addressing the growing piles of quarry waste that may contain a fair proportion of saleable fine aggregates.
The demand of sand for construction purposed has increased rapidly with fast urbanization
Depletion of natural sand has led many countries to regulate or even ban the use of river and sea sand, and to start using manufactured sand instead. We sat down with our manufactured sand expert and asked where he sees the industry is heading.
