Waupaca Foundry Accepts Better Climate Challenge
Innovation has been a top priority for Waupaca Foundry; if you aren’t looking ahead, you’re already behind. Moving beyond the innovation in how to make our casting, Waupaca Foundry is molding the path for what a “green foundry” looks like.

Getting to the Bottom of Landfills
Waupaca Foundry teamed up with TRC Engineering Services to test the hypothesis that foundry sand by-product could do the job of native clay in various aspects of landfill construction. If they were right, it would mean that the by-product could be used beyond its traditional role as a geotechnical fill.

Recycled Foundry Sand to Create Future Sledding Hill in the City of Waupaca
Waupaca Foundry continually uses, reconditions and reuses the sand that helps to make our high quality gray and ductile iron castings. Sand that can no longer be used for creating quality iron castings does not have to end up in a landfill.

Technology Gives Old Materials New Life
Recycling and reusing is not a new idea for the foundry industry. But bringing used foundry by-products back into the molding and casting process... That's news. In February 2013, Waupaca Foundry will be the first in the United States to install state-of-the-art sand reclamation technology at Plant 2/3 to reclaim used sand for the foundry. This experimental pilot program will bring new value to old sand and help reduce Waupaca's dependence on new-sand purchases.
