GRR-Harleyville is located adjacent to Giant Cement on 60 acres of a 1700-acre site north of the town of Harleyville, SC. GRR processes both liquid and solid hazardous and non-hazardous materials into waste-derived fuel. The fuel is then burned by Giant Cement in the production of Portland cement in its rotary kiln. Giant is also able to feed certain liquid waste fuels direct-feed from a tanker to the kiln.
GRR-Harleyvile has the distinction of operating the most successful cement kiln in recycling alternate fuels since the program started under BIF in 1992. It is one of only two cement plants in the US that is permitted to store and utilize bulk solid hazardous waste fuels. In 2005, the facility completed a $130 million expansion which furthered its ability to efficiently and effectively handle these materials.
Examples of wastes that are suitable for GRR’s resource recovery program include solvents, waste oil, and coolants, as well as shredded and crushable solids. GRR can receive materials in tankers, roll-offs, end dumps, and rail cars.
