In 2008-2009, EPA consulted with a broad group of stakeholders to consider various actions for increasing the beneficial use of foundry sand. This process resulted in the development of a Multi-Stakeholder Action Plan (MAP) that identifies key challenges to increased beneficial use and a comprehensive set of actions aimed at increasing the beneficial use of foundry sands. Over fourteen national organizations have agreed to implement specified actions with the goal of increasing the beneficial use rate to 50% by 2015. EPA's Region 5 (Susan Mooney; Email: mooney.susan@epa.gov; Tel: 312-886-3585) is Chairing the Steering Group that is overseeing the implementation of the Action Plan.
