Hydrovac Waste Solutions (HWS) developed a cleantech process that transforms the waste products of hydrovac activities into raw materials for new cement. This novel recycling process separates hydrovac slurry into reusable water, landscape materials, and other raw value-added materials. It contributes to Alberta’s circular economy by keeping materials out of landfills while supporting economic activity and reducing emissions. By applying HWS’ cleantech process, Alberta’s cement and hydrovac industries will be a step closer to meeting their sustainability and net-zero emission goals.
