Foundries continually generate large quantities of excess sand (hereinafter referred to as spent foundry sand, SFS) that has the potential to be beneficially reused outside of the foundry industry with only about 10 % of the total reused primarily for construction purposes. We examined the use of SFS in greenhouse potting or container mixes, as an ingredient in topsoil blends used for landscaping or reclamation purposes, and in rooting zones for sports turf applications. Agronomic as well as environmental issues with the use of SFS in manufactured topsoil were considered.
