Sparton Resources Inc. has announced that its subsidiary company, Yunnan Sparton Environtech Co. Ltd. (YSET) has executed a Letter of Intent and cooperation agreement with Lafarge Shui On (Beijing) Technical Services Co., Ltd (LSOC). LSOC is a Chinese based subsidiary of Lafarge SA.
Lafarge may use waste coal ash as an additive in its cement manufacturing process. The company has a number of operations in China, including 18 operating cement plants and grinding stations and one cement plant under construction in Yunnan Province. Both parties envision significant positive environmental benefits from this joint programme.
Under the terms of the agreement, YSET will identify deposits of potentially recyclable waste with LSOC evaluating their suitability for use within the cement-making process. YSET's initial waste ash reclamation work is at a pilot plant stage and has focussed on the Lincang area of Yunnan.
Company President, Lee Barker stated: "Sparton is very pleased to be associated in this program with the Lafarge organization. Lafarge's strong position in Yunnan, and its support for the recycling and waste cleanup initiatives developed by YSET, will be extremely positive contributions to the program going forward."
